There was a competition to design a ‘tiny hut’ for New Brighton – to act as a draw card to the sea-side suburb. The challenge was to:
“design a small temporary structure that can attract and delight passers-by, capture peoples’ imagination, and inspire people to visit or to learn more about New Brighton”. http://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-rebuild/arts-and-culture/transitional-christchurch/tinyhuts/about-the-competition/
The two huts shown are some of the winners of the competition.
