If you have been to Christchurch you will know that the Arts Centre - the former University of Canterbury - was a favourite spot for tourists and locals alike. It is in worse condition than it looks at first glance. Repair costs will probably exceed NZ$ 10 million.

In an inside courtyard the tower of the Observatory has collapsed.

The Arts Centre is fenced off and will be for a very, very long time.
