It was a cool, clear evening, ideal for taking photos of the Street Lamps along Park Terrace.

Mischa Kuball’s Solidarity Grid is based in the act of giving and the positive symbolism of light. Solidarity Grid was commissioned by the Christchurch City Council and project produced by SCAPE Public Art.

Over a period of three years, beginning with SCAPE 7 in 2013, a single streetlamp from each of 21 cities around the globe was gifted to Christchurch as a gesture of solidarity with the city during its recovery and rebuild process. These streetlamps have been installed along a section of Park Terrace, providing a literal as well as symbolic exploratory trail of light for pedestrians and cyclists.

The Solidarity Grid street lights from partner cities are located in Park Terrace between Armagh and Peterborough Street.
