Passive Voice

Passive Voice is used when you are more interested in the action than in the person who did it.
It is very easy, just follow these tips.
ACTIVE:  Gaudi designed La Sagrada Familia

 PASSIVE: La Sagrada Familia was designed by Gaudi

1. Active subject becomes agent preceeded by the preposition by
2. Active object becomes passive subject
3. Auxiliary Be is used  in the same tense as the main verb
4. Main verb always in past participle

This link will help you to understand all the changes in passive much better.
