Celebrating all things Puaka-James Hight

  • Open Chch 2022 PJH

The Puaka-James Hight building has been chosen to be part of Open Christchurch festival of exceptional architecture in 2022.

Open Christchurch is a free, one-weekend-only festival of exceptional architecture. It is open to everyone in Ōtautahi Christchurch on Satuday 30 April and Sunday 1 May (UC is participating on Sunday only). Find out more about the Open Christchurch festival at https://openchch.nz/

What's happening in Puaka-James Hight?

  • The building will be open from 11am - 2pm on Sunday 1 May for people to explore our 53-metre-tall beacon of brutalism.
  • We'll be offering on demand guided tours, as well as self-guided tour sheets for those who wish to explore on their own.
  • A display showcasing the architecture, construction, and library history - featuring archival material from our Macmillan Brown Library - will be up in the space between the lifts on level 2 (main entry) of the library.

Pick up one of our Puaka-James Hight postcards or bookmarks (featuring badges and stickers made in our Te Rua Makerspace) as a souvenir of the event.
