The article discusses planning the future of Christchurch in New Zealand after the devastating earthquake in 2011. It explores the four distinct phases in rehabilitating a city. The first involves finding/rescuing victims and lasts as long as there is hope for survival. The second focuses not only on recovering casualties but also stabilizing basic services, and the third is reestablishing normality which requires the greatest amount of time, resources and investment. The fourth and most important is revisioning the city's longer-term future.
