The RDM Campus in Rotterdam served as a submarine factory, now these vast spaces are used for education and as a research center. These buildings are also housing the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design.

Not an industrial building, but a WWII bunker converted to a church in the late 1940s. The bell tower was added in 1952.

Bunkerkirche Sankt Sakrament, Heerdt, Germany (1949)
Renovation architect: Phil. W. Stang

Prolific architect Thomas Heatherwick just finished transforming an old grain silo in Cape Town into South Africa’s largest art museum – the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. The team spent years carefully renovating the silo’s 42 massive cylindrical concrete tubes into 6,000 square feet of gallery space, which will hold the world’s premier collection of African art.

The grain silo has held court over Cape Town’s Table Bay harbor since 1924. Some of the building’s rough concrete walls were kept intact, while others were carved into shapes and finished with polished concrete. An 88-foot-high cathedral-like atrium sits at the heart of the museum and leads to the expansive network of 80 individual galleries.
