The Cardboard Cathedral by Shigeru Ban

Recycling meets religion in this very eco-friendly cathedral. After the 2011 earthquake in New Zealand one of the Christchurch landmark cathedrals was badly damaged. Architect and 2014 Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban was asked to come up with a temporary solution to help replace the landmark until a more permanent cathedral could be built.

His response: using 98 cardboard tubes and 8 shipping containers designed into an A frame. Colourful printed glass sits at the front of the cathedral creating a modern version of the classic stained glass windows. The structure is expected to exist for 50 years, long enough for a more permanent structure to be build.

The Jane Restaurant by Piet Boon

The Jane in Antwerp is michelin star chef Sergio Hermans and Nick Bril new restaurant. Set in a former military chapel and designed by Piet Boon this new venue for the two top chefs really turned into something special.

The attention to detail is astounding: from custom designed glass in lead, neon skull lighting fixtures, a 150 light bulb chandelier, tattooed bar elements and much more this restaurant really mixes fine dining with a rock ‘n roll aesthetic. Via Yatzer
