Recycling has become more and more important in the modern world, with humans seeking to reuse old things to cut down on waste in an attempt to save the planet.

But it’s not just little things like plastic bottles and paper cups that we can recycle and repurpose. Even big buildings like churches, factories, and clocktowers can be reused, redesigned, and repurposed in some very imaginative and innovative ways.

There are many wonderful examples of this all over the world, from prisons in the United States that have been transformed into bars and hotels to old churches in Europe that have been turned into luxurious modern homes and even skate parks!
