Christchurch City Council Newsline: 28th June 2017

Ryan Gravel.A youth design challenge this weekend will see students brainstorm potential solutions for the Ōtākaro Avon River corridor regeneration area.

They will be supported by local design professionals and mentors and a visiting United States urban planner and designer who conceived a successful urban redevelopment project as a student.

Ryan Gravel's student research shaped the original vision for the Atlanta BeltLine - one of the most inspiring urban redevelopment programmes underway in the United States.

The Atlanta BeltLine is a 35-kilometre transit greenway that is changing the physical form of Atlanta and the decisions people make about living there. The project is now a US$4 billion public-private investment, whose health and economic benefits are already evident through the record-breaking use of its first section.

Ryan will share his experiences at a public event on Thursday 29th June (6 to 7.30pm at The Piano - 156 Armagh Street) and with more than 50 students at a Design Jam this weekend.

The Design Jam is presented by the Ministry of Awesome and supported by Regenerate Christchurch.

“We want to make sure young people feel they have a say in the future of the red zone and this is an amazing opportunity to do that. Participants will be mentored by knowledgeable and skilled industry leaders," says Regenerate Christchurch Chief Executive Ivan Iafeta.

Ministry of Awesome Chief Awesome Officer Lauren Bliss Merritt says they are delighted to present such a unique and meaningful opportunity for young people in Christchurch. “This immersive and fast-paced experience will give participants an opportunity to brainstorm, test, collaborate and communicate ideas and rapidly develop an exciting approach to the future of this huge area.”

The public is invited to view the designs at the Ministry of Awesome from Thursday 6th July 2017.
