Sacred Skateboarding – Church Becomes Kaos Temple

Thanks to an online fundraising project and support from Red Bull, a young collective known as the Church Brigade has adopted the dilapidated house of worship and transformed it into a public indoor skateboarding park. The old St. Barbara’s has been reborn as the Kaos Temple.

Vivid enjoyment: artist Okuda San Miguel was commissioned with painting the walls and vaulted ceiling with colourful geometric figures. Nearly every surface has been covered in graffiti-like rainbow hues set off by the high church windows. In this video, Okuda tells what inspired him in his designs for the Kaos Temple and other works. This former church has become a special place for both skaters and art lovers. Source: designboom
