Cardboard Cathedral


The Cardboard Cathedral in Christchurch, New Zealand, is the transitional pro-cathedral of the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch opened in August 2013. It was designed by architect Shigeru Ban and seats around 700 people.
The cathedral has elements of wood, steel and poly-carbonate and is built to 130% of the current earthquake standard. It is designed to last for 50 years – it was never meant to be permanent. It shows how such structures can be a model of what is possible in post-disaster environments. It was one of the first things that Christchurch could point to and say ‘we are rebuilding.
I loved the coloured - is it glass? - in the triangular window
