The Anglican cathedral in Christchurch, New Zealand, was so damaged in the 2011 earthquake that its remnants will now have to be pulled down.

From the article:
Quote
Bishop Matthews said that no "bulldozers or wrecking balls" would be used, and that the cathedral would be deconstructed "with the utmost care and respect".

"We acknowledge the high level of community interest and sense of ownership as the cathedral was both an iconic building and a place of regular worship by many," she said in a statement.
