Architect Antoni Gaudí’s most famous and awe-inspiring work is this unfinished, super-sized church. With its cake-in-the-rain facade and otherworldly spires, the church is an icon of Barcelona and its trademark Modernista style. As an architect, Gaudí’s foundations were classics, nature, and religion, and this church represents all three.
Nearly a century after his death, people continue to toil to bring Gaudí’s designs to life. There’s something powerful about a community of committed people with a vision, working on a church that won’t be finished in their lifetime—as was standard in the Gothic age. It’s a testament to the generations of architects, sculptors, stone-cutters, fundraisers, and donors who shared Gaudí’s astonishing vision. If there’s any building on earth I’d like to see, it’s the Basílica de la Sagrada Família...finished.
