Christchurch, New Zealand Composite of Two Photos

Two photos of Christchurch on the South Island of New Zealand are: Christchurch Cathedral and the Chalice sculpture by Neil Dawson, both in Christchurch Square. During the February 2011 earthquake, 185 people were killed and 1,500 buildings were damaged. The cathedral and its spire were among the casualties. After a lengthy legal process among the High Court and Supreme Court, this Gothic Revival church was scheduled for demolition in early 2014. Yet the site was not cleared. In 2017, plans to rebuild were approved. The project is expected to require ten years.
