    The Once in a Lifetime - City Building in Christchurch after Disaster book is (as put by Alison McCulloch) "...like Christchurch, full of brilliant ideas, clever people and infectious enthusiasm, all leavened – as any city is – with a few cul de sacs best avoided. And how could it not be: this impressive undertaking comprises 55 written essays (and 39 visual) from academics, activists, journalists, architects, as well as people with métiers I’m less sure about, like eco-urbanists, spatial analysts, and futurists. It’s a potpourri (organic, for sure) and not the kind of book you should sit down to read right through. (Though if you do pull that off, it feels a bit like you’ve earned a bachelor’s in urban design theory, perhaps with a minor in futurism.)"

    Edited by locals Barnaby Bennett, James Dann, Emma Johnson & Ryan Reynolds and with a foreword by Helen Clark, its a fascinating read now, and will be an excellent reflection to look back on in 20 years time :-)
