The church Transformed into a Colorful Skate Park...

The church of Santa Barbara in Llanera, Asturias, transformed into a colorful Skate park

 Built in 1912, the church of Santa Barbara in Llanera, Asturias was left for years falling apart and abandoned until a group of skaters got together with the help of Redbull and turned Santa Barbara into the epic indoor Skate park you see above.

The skate park is a cool idea, but for me the best bit is that bright geometric artwork, by artist Okuda.
 Its almost worth taking up skateboarding for :)

What do you guys recon?

Definitely a novel use for an old church. I love the artwork, and am pleased to see a building being re-purposed rather than left to decay.

I think it is brilliant! I love the originality of the project, the colourful interior and its use. Have a very lovely Christmas!! Pati from London x

I don't know if God is laughing, but too bad it isn't packed full of people, standing room only, spilling out the doors, waiting in line, taking a number to get in, booked full weeks and months and years ahead of time, to worship God, but then, Christians don't need a building to worship God as we are 'the church'.
