This book offers a selection of churches, convents and monasteries converted for new uses. Preserving their old structure and very special rooms, these buildings have become modern and luminous spaces: art centers, galleries, hotels, theaters, lofts, houses, commercial buildings, and more. Converted churches shows 35 highly suggestive projects, as a result of this contrast between the original shell and the modern elements, transformed by renowned or just brilliant architects and designers such as Jean Nouvel, Luis Vicente Flores, Matthew Lloyd Architects or Paredes Pedrosa.
