A cardboard cathedral is to be built in the centre of Christchurch, New Zealand, as a temporary replacement for the city’s landmark cathedral, which is being controversially demolished after sustaining damage in a series of earthquakes.

The “transitional church”, designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, will be located in Latimer Square, close to Cathedral Square. It will be built on the site of St John’s church, which was demolished after suffering severe damage in the largest of the earthquakes to hit the city in February last year.
