Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū is a landmark building for the city.
Featuring a spectacular flowing glass and metal façade that evokes the sinuous form of the koru and Christchurch's River Avon, the building houses nine exhibition areas, a reference library, auditorium, education workrooms, restaurant, shops and extensive collection storage. Exhibition spaces are arranged across two floors, connected by a dramatic marble staircase rising from the NZI foyer.

Visitors are welcomed by a large gateway sculpture, Reasons for voyaging, a collaboration between Canterbury sculptor Graham Bennett and architect, David Cole. The Gallery forecourt incorporates plantings, seating areas and sculptural works. Work No. 2314 by Martin Creed spans the south facing wall of the Gallery.

The Māori name, Te Puna o Waiwhetū, relates to the life-giving properties of the artesian spring on which the Gallery is built and our role in contributing to the cultural wellbeing of the community.
