Designed by Samuel Hurst Seager, the Queen Anne design of the former Municipal Chambers (1887), constructed in brick, was a marked departure from the stone Gothic Revival public architecture frequently designed and constructed in Christchurch in the late 1800s. The building suffered considerable damage in the earthquakes and has been extensively braced pending a decision on its future. Earthquake damaged.
