Evolution of the Temple for Christchurch

Temple For Christchurch from Kyle Kastner on Vimeo.

This video features the evolution of the Temple for Christchurch in its various stages of construction, from the ground up and back down again with its ceremonial burning. The Temple not only embodied qualities of the quake in its architecture (which represented the movement of the quake), but also in its use of recycled timber materials (from structures destroyed in the quake.) By turning the destructive force of the quake on itself, this empowering project also catalyzed shifts in the community affected by the natural disaster, through a collective healing process.
