Christchurch CBD lights up again
Sun, 21 Oct 2012 12:17p.m.
Christchurch's vacant city centre teemed with life again last night as thousands of residents gathered for a magical light show.
LuxCity, described by festival director Jessica Halliday as a city made from light for one night, was the opening event for the Festival of Transitional Architecture, involving more than 350 architecture and design students from across New Zealand.
Laser beams, projectors, balloons and fabric suspended from demolition equipment were used to create spaces for pop-up bars, cafes, a theatre and a gallery.
Ms Halliday said the entire city was invited but the numbers exceeded organisers' expectations.
The event, funded by Creative New Zealand and Christchurch City Council, was intended to create excitement and hope for the city's earthquake recovery.

If you saw the amount of people that were there you wouldn't say that. Massive turnout. Hugely successful. Definitely not a waste at all.

Too bad it was only on for one night, what a waste of time and effort. It would have also been good if they had of promoted it more.
