Christchurch Cathedral, NZ

This is a sad reminder of the Christchurch quakes. I think it’s important to visit as you can see the full extent of the devastating earthquakes. There seems to be a lot of local controversy around whether to demolish it, rebuild it, or permanently relocate the congregation to the Cardboard Cathedral. Regardless, visiting this monument is a humbling experience, seeing it all gated up, half exposed to the weather and reclaimed by nature. Christchurch Cathedral is also surrounded by community-builtding initiatives like giant chess boards, art installations and gourmet food vans, so it’s worth the visit anyway.
