I think that in the 'render' of this building, it looks quite cluttered, with too many towers sticking out of it in a haphazard way. I think I might prefer it if they left it near enough as it is now, 4 towers at from and rear. Would give it more symmetry and would be less cluttered. Any thoughts?

I'm not too fond of overdecorated buildings like this, just as i don't like rococo and flamboyant gothic architecture. Less is more.
I respect your opinion, and I respect that you respect mine. My opinion is this: that there is so much more meaning to the work as provided by faith, as there couldn't be in many other structures built today.

Now, as for the comments that say that this building is "too cluttered," I think it looks just fine in pictures, but I would wait to see it in person to get the overall visual effect and then be better able to judge its appearance.

I don't think it's too cluttered the way it is now, but it will be too cluttered when it's completed, if it's going to look like the model on page one.

Imo this is one of the ugliest buildings i've ever seen. Especially the oldest northeast facade is just too much detail, like an exaggerated dripping candle. Nonetheless it is an impressive building which i must see once everytime i visit Barcelona. But i am glad the city has so much more to offer than just this thing.
One word : LOL

Why 'lol'? Are you saying it DOESN'T have too much detail?

I love this place. A friend and I bought cheap cartons of wine and one night lay on the benches on the grass in front and got horrendously wasted last time we went to Barcelona! It's more impressive drunk.

I'm so glad I will get to see this finished during my lifetime. I use to think it was never going to be finished.
