Cardboard cathedral

Plans are underway to temporarily replace the Christchurch Cathedral with a cardboard cathedral.

The Christchurch Anglican diocese has commissioned renowned Japanese architect Shigeru Ban to design a cathedral capable of seating more than 700 people.

The temporary cathedral, which would be constructed of locally produced cardboard tubes erected in an A-shape over a foundation of shipping containers, would be available as a venue for both religious services and concerts.
