College House, Christchurch   (6.4.14)

A few years ago I took part in a college exchange between Dunedin and Christchurch. Sadly, the year after, the Christchurch earthquake struck. In addition to the loss of life, a large number of historic buildings were destroyed or damaged. One of them was the beautiful and architecturally remarkable chapel at College House.

I took a few photos while I was there (click for the complete set). Thanks to the wonder of the internet, the college has been in touch to use them for a fundraising effort to repair and reopen the chapel. You can donate to the building development fund via the college's website.
