Whole House Reuse

From Standing Room Only, 1:34 pm on 31 May 2015

Two years after a quake damaged house was carefully dismantled and its materials distributed to artists here and overseas, those artists are about to put what they've created on show at Canterbury Museum as part of a project called Whole House Reuse.

The Buxton's 1920s weatherboard family home at 19 Admirals Way now lives on in around 400 artworks and artefacts. More than 250 people took up the challenge - from professional artists, craftspeople and architects, to school children and community organisations.
