    About

    The "Christchurch earthquakes story for engineers", Red Zone is an equally enlightening read for anyone interested in the up-close-and-personal accounts of those directly affected, the coalface rescuers, the authorities who guided the recovery through its various phases, the seismic and other scientific experts informing the re-build, and those charged with physically putting the city back together again.

    One hundred and eighty-one human lives were lost and thousands more turned upside down when Christchurch reeled to the impacts of the violent 6.3 magnitude February 22, 2011 earthquake that made world headlines. A majority of buildings in the Central Business District either came down, partially came down, or were otherwise substantially damaged. Many tens of kilometres of roading and underground services (i.e. water, sewer and storm water pipes) were destroyed or affected. (These are being repaired through a substantial, seven-way project alliance of sorts.)

    Red Zone is graphically illustrated. Author Jordan Kelly has endeavoured, through her own photography particularly, to capture for readers the extent of devastation in a city, the CBD of which remained a ghost town for more than two years. Much of the built environment remains in disarray today . . . with "holes" in the streetscape where buildings and other significant structures once used to be.
