Supercomputers are generally bought by governments and top universities and housed in areas that are off-limits to all but a select few. And while some may find the sight of a supercomputer awe-inspiring only a few would be inspired to pray, so it was an interesting choice for the Barcelona Supercomputing Center to be installed in a former chapel.

Implications - When it comes to architecture, one of the most awe-inspiring ways that an architect can make a splash in the scene is by creating a completely contemporary space out of an old, archaic building. Like this chapel that now holds Europe's most powerful supercomputer, many old religious buildings can be transformed with stunning, modern-day interiors.
