A devastating earthquake all but leveled Christchurch’s older buildings in February, however Shigeru Ban just unveiled a massive temporary cardboard building that will replace the city’s historic cathedral exactly one year after the quake. The ambitious cardboard church will hold 700 people and it can be erected in a matter of months to help the city with its healing process. The church is just the latest example of Ban’s groundbreaking cardboard architecture, which creates high quality temporary shelters using humble cardboard tubes as the main structural supports.
