“A chapel speaks a different architectural language than a supermarket, and everybody can read the difference.”

Check out The Limelight from NYC. It was a super popular nightclub in NYC in the 80’s and 90’s. The juxtaposition of the nightclub atmosphere and the old church violates the architectural language that we understand. In doing so, Peter Gatien was able to create one of the most important night club scenes of the 80’s and  90’s.
