Christchurch Cathedral

(Cardboard Cathedral)





順帶一提,神父Lawrence Kimberley寫得一手好文章啊~



Christchurch suffered from a 6.3 earthquake on 22 February 2011. The Christchurch Cathedral was gone.

A NZ magazine introduced a Japanese architect ‘Shigeru Ban’. He came to Christchurch and built this Transitional Cathedral. This church is made of cardboard. It can house 700 people at most. And it can last for 50 years with a 130% of the current NZ earthquake code.


And by the way, Lawrence Kimberley, the Dean of Christchurch, wrote goooooooooooooooood!
