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.
