Admittedly I haven’t travelled to Christchurch too regularly following the devastating earthquakes a few years ago. However, today as part of a nation wide series of seminars we’re undertaking I was in Christchurch.
The location of our seminar was ideal for a quick look at the Cardboard Cathedral.
While the cathedral may have sparked a great deal of opinions I found the building exrtemely well thought out. Some very simple forms assembled with clean and crisp details create a building that allows the church to continue functioning while the main Christchurch Cathedral remains in limbo following significant earthquake damage.
