Christchurch Cardboard Cathedral

 

The new Cathedral in Christchurch is also known as the ” Cardboard Cathedral”

Christchurch Cardboard CathedralDesigned by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban’s. His notable buildings include the Tokyo Curtain Wall House, the Pompidou Museum in Metz, France and he was the first architect in Japan to use paper as a primary building material.

Location:

The Cardboard Cathedral is located on the corner of Madras and Hereford Streets on a section allocated to the Anglican church in Christchurch’s original 1850 survey opposite Latimer Square.

This building will be the “face” of New Christchurch.

The Wizard of New Zealand, one of the strongest critics of the Anglican diocese for wanting to demolish Christchurch Cathedral and who was previously a daily speaker in Cathedral Square, called the design of the Cardboard Cathedral “kitsch”.
Lonely Planet named Christchurch one of the “top 10 cities to travel to in 2013” in October 2012, and the construction of the Cardboard Cathedral was cited as one of the reasons that make the city an exciting place
