Championed by a generation of architects led by Sir Miles Warren and Peter Beaven.

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of CoCA’s iconic Modernist building and in celebration, the Centre of Contemporary Art presents a suite of exciting events focused around mid century architecture and design, to be held both in the gallery and across the city of Christchurch.

Located at 66 Gloucester Street, CoCA is housed in a purpose-built gallery considered to be one of the premier exhibition spaces in New Zealand. Designed by Minson, Henning Hansen and Dines in 1968, the building is a major work of the modernist ‘Christchurch Style’, and influenced by the British movement, The New Brutalism.
