'Cardboard' cathedral rises in New Zealand

Anglican Cathedral badly damaged during 2011 Christchurch earthquake gets a temporary makeover.

    In February 2011, a major earthquake struck the New Zealand city of Christchurch, killing more than a hundred people and damaging many buildings, including the iconic Anglican Cathedral. 

    The city is hoping to open a new place of worship by December this year.

    Now, a Japanese architect has designed a temporary and highly-innovative replacement made out of cardboard.

    Al Jazeera's Belinda Henley reports from Christchurch, New Zealand.
