Cardboard Cathedral

Christchurch Transitional Cathedral

Christchurch Cardboard Cathedral 2

Designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban to go up in a hurry following the earthquakes and destruction of Christchurch Cathedral, the “Cardboard Cathedral” features 98 huge cardboard tubes as part of its construction and has become an attraction in its own right.

It may be the city’s temporary Anglican cathedral, but it’s likely to be so for a while to come.
