International architect Shigeru Ban has just completed his fourth visit to Christchurch. We are continuing toward the completion of a feasibility study which will, we hope, see the building of a magnificent structure in the central city. Plans for a 'transitional cathedral' are well advanced and we hope to update you again once the report is completed. The project will need to be signed off by church authorities and a suitable site found. We are hopeful that our vision will be realised early in 2012! Check SHIGERU BAN ARCHITECTS website (here) for information on this exciting project.
There is more information, and the project proposal document, on the Cathedral website here.
