The new Christchurch terminal was opened in 2013 to replace the 1960 building designed by Paul Pascoe. The new terminal, by Warren and Mahoney, was completed at a cost of $237 million. The sculpture in front is entitled ‘Cumulus Gate pavilion for Richard Pearse’. Designed by Gregor Kregar, it consists of 1,000 pieces of hand-cut stainless steel which reflect the environment. The title refers to the pioneering South Canterbury aircraft designer Richard Pearse.
