3D Puzzle - Christchurch Cathedral
It was built between 1864 and 1904 when plans from the Canterbury Association aimed to build a city around a central cathedral and college in the Canterbury region based on the English model of the Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, England. Repeated earthquakes have damaged the building (mostly the spire) in 1881, 1888, 1901, 1922 and September 2010. The February 2011 earthquake destroyed the spire and part of the tower, and severely damaged the structure of the remaining building. The Anglican Church had decided to demolish the building and replace it with a new stucture - a decision which was controversal in post-quake Christchurch.
