Hum Dingers of the Grid City

Hum Dingers of Grid City - modernist commercial architecture in Christchurch, NZHum Dingers of the Grid City is the personal creative project of Nicholas Burrowes. Shot around 2007, Nick cruised the streets of Christchurch documenting the many modernist commercial buildings of the city pre the first earthquake in 2010. In his words: “Some remain. Some of unknown future. Many gone forever. Crying shame. All are part of Christchurch’s fabric whether you like them or not. Concrete slabs, aggregate, blocks; brutal, imposing, international. Not everyone’s cup of tea but certainly mine.”

Mine too Nick.

    that triangle house! oddly there were a few in the town of Stratford growing up – including my best friend who lived next door. I was so jealous, our house was a rectangle.
