The 112 year-old Provo Tabernacle in Utah, damaged by fire in 2010, has been saved from ruin by the Mormon church for conversion into a temple.

With its interior gutted, walls reinforced and supported in order to dig a two story basement, the entire structure (all 3,175 tonnes of it) now rests on stilts 40 feet (12m) in the air, appearing to ‘float’ from certain angles.
