Christchurch leaders have revealed the unconventional design they want to use for the city’s temporary Cathedral and it is made out of cardboard and uses shipping containers as the foundations.
They hope to have it built by the first anniversary of this year’s major earthquake at an estimated cost of $4 million.
The design has been presented by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, who is known for building temporary structures after natural disasters.
A church he built in Kobe, Japan, after the 1995 earthquake served the Catholic community there for eleven years.
