La Sagrada Familia, is not a cathedral, just a church. So seville's cathedral is still the biggest in spain and the third one in Europe.

It's by far the best visited construction site in the world. Where people's entry fees have for a long time been funding the project already.

Here's How Sagrada Familia Will Look When It's Finally Done In 2026

When Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí was tragically killed by a train in 1926, he was in the middle of building of his masterpiece—the Barcelona basilica, Sagrada Familia. Eighty-six years later, the church still isn't complete. But according to Jordi Faulí, the current architect on the magnificent life-sized sand castle, it'll be done by 2026. This is what it's going to look like.

Great project, sad that we have to wait so long until it is completely finished. I know it's a church, but since its projected height is 170m, why is it not in the highrises section?

I was wondering the same. After all it is highrise by ssc standards and it is u/c. It would be good to move this thread to that section. It would gain more attention. And more attention is better updated thread so it'd be all for good

ps. I made a request in highrise request thread.

In a normal stone building this is difficult, in Sagrada Familia it is several orders of magnitude more difficult because of the complex shapes involved. This is the reason why a single window takes anywhere from 6 to 18 months to build.

This lecture by one of the architects gives some insight into the complexity of the building design and construction. Also, remember they are using computers now to calculate what Gaudi did with pen and paper. How on earth he was going to be able to convince the building inspectors that his building was actually safe, I don't know, just to be able to recognize the structural integrity of the building you need to be a math genius.
