Shipping Container Shopping Centre in Christchurch


Cashel Mall was destroyed in the devastating earthquake in Christchurch last February. Chirstchurchians have until now been doing without it while they focussed on rebuilding their lives and homes. Re:START is an organisation that decided it was time to get people shopping again, and so designed and built a 'mall' out of shipping containers while the mall proper is rebuilt.

Anyway, it looks fantastic, its a great solution in a hard situation and I love the whole concept.
