Christchurch’s iconic Anglican Cathedral was severely damaged in the 2011 earthquake, and a question mark hangs over its future. A Transitional Cathedral was opened in 2013 on Hereford St./ Latimer Square after Japanese architect Shigeru Ban gifted his time and design. Ban's so-called "Cardboard Cathedral" makes use of varied construction materials, from cardboard tubes to timber beams, structural steel, and concrete. It also incorporates a unique "rose window" that features images from the original cathedral’s rose window.
