fashionable. industrial. illicit.
Christchurch’s famous High Street has been all of these things. Though destroyed by earthquakes, you can now relive the heyday (and darker side) of High Street in an online multimedia project. The buildings are gone, but their stories have been unearthed from the rubble.
After High Street's beloved Victorian and Edwardian streetscapes and laneways were destroyed by earthquake, the NZ Historic Places Trust engaged NV Interactive to create an online audio archive of the precinct
A tool for locals and tourists to assist with the revitalisation of the High Street Precinct providing a permanent 'collective remembrance' of architectural & social history.
Primarily designed for the mobile tablet experience, users can consume content while physically exploring the High Street area.
The fully responsive site also works beautifully on the desktop, making it an excellent research tool for social and architectural historians.
