You must be joking, maybe you like more the project in your signature: The Dutch Mountain.

LOL.... the post above the above is just -_______- No wonder architecture is soo crappy these days.

Now SAGRADA FAMILIA IS A WORK OF ART!!! And above all A WORK OF FAITH! That makes it so much more beautiful and meaningful! And the fact that this collosal project has come to fruition says alot!

More beautiful and meaningful because it is a building of faith? Maybe to you. Not to me. It is so hard to understand there are actually people on this planet who don't care as much about this building as you do? Like i said, it is impressive and i've paid it several visits, but that doesn't instantly mean i like the architecture. I'm not too fond of overdecorated buildings like this, just as i don't like rococo and flamboyant gothic architecture. Less is more.

La Sagrada Familia is a perfect and gorgeous piece of art and archittecture, when it's finished it has to be one of the wonders of the world.

Less is a Bore (as in Boring).

Are you stoned or something? Or Suburbanist in disguise?

This building is a work of art. An exemplary building that shows how fantastic architecture can be and why we all love it.

It was/is literally the life's work of one of the greatest architects to ever live. Some say that building the tallest tower in the world is impressive, but its not really (in terms of architecture at least), its like trying to build the world's first ***** viewable from space, its new, expensive, incredibly large and veiny and perhaps may even get a few laughs but at the end of the day you'll never be able to reproduce with it so what is the point.
The sagrada familia is a true labor of love by the architect, you only have to see the unending process of drawings, calculations, model making etc. to understand the amount of time simply spent contemplating such a building by the architect.

However it is hard not to think how different it would have been had gaudi somehow managed to live until and oversee the building's completion. How certain details might have been different or the same. Perhaps such an epic piece needs several signatures, not just whoever had the idea first.

either way it is one of the truly great designs ever, not just on the scale of itself as a building, but also throughout the city through the endless network of links and references. Despite the aesthetic being all over the place, the feeling upon entry is special, there is a definite otherworldly-ness to it that is a consistent theme of his architecture which quite aptly comes to a climax in this work. Not sure if I care to see it finished, we'll see what happens when/if it does.

Today it is the 160th anniversary of the birth of this genius architect: Antoni Gaudí.

Thanks for all your masterpieces!

Don't murder me for this... but I think the building is way too overdone in terms of detail.
What's taking them so long to work on this?

I really am fond of The Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's style was just amazing. This is to me the most iconic cathedral on the planet, a true masterpiece. Furthermore, its history is fascinating.

And to say that its works are to last until 2026...

a lot of details = longer the work

average person would figure it out already

every part is pretty much custom made

I knew details took a lot of time...but 130 years? Really?

Well, I suppose there are buildings that took way longer.
