SHIGERU BAN: CARDBOARD CATHEDRAL
Presented by Beca

In Christchurch's inner city an innovative and symbolic structure has just taken shape: a 'cardboard cathedral' to stand in for the historic building devastated by the earthquakes of September 2010 and February 2011. In essays, building plans and specially commissioned photography, 'Shigeru Ban: Cardboard Cathedral' tells the story of the building's remarkable design and construction. It outlines the world-famous, award-winning architect's concerns about post-disaster responses and the role architecture can play in re-establishing a community.

WORD Christchurch is proud to be launching this beautiful book in the cathedral itself, with author Andrew Barrie in conversation with Shigeru Ban. Be a part of this historic occasion and hear the fascinating story behind Christchurch's Transitional Cathedral.

Stay behind afterwards to have a celebratory drink with Auckland University Press for the official launch.
