Krystina Kaza, Allan Macdonald & Jeanette Budgett – The Unstable City

Thursday, 25 Jul, noon
All events

Talk. Free entry
Auckland Art Gallery

The immediate prompt for this project was the series of devastating earthquakes in Christchurch during 2010 and 2011 and Auckland City’s policy to require certain building owners to assess their buildings and identify those at risk, however, 'The Unstable City' draws out a deeper sense of precarity in the project of the city.

The aim of this collaborative project is – through text, photography and mapping – to engage with questions of Auckland’s architectural heritage and to draw attention to the scale of the potential loss of buildings and the communities that occupy them.
