of course i'm going to give the sagrada familia (and everything else built by gaudi) a 10. i am constantly amazed at how gaudi could be so completely creative, cost-effective, structurally efficient, AND aesthetically pleasing. architects almost always have to sacrifice 1 or more of these ideals in their buildings. frank gehry and zaha hadid's guggenheim designs may be creative. but they're definitely not cost effective nor are they structurally efficient.

even today, when i look at gaudi's stuff, i sense that;

1. they look different from just about all the other buildings around.
2. the buildings don't look as if they were designed and built a century ago. they have a strange, timeless quality.

as examples, gaudi's use of parabolic arches was more efficient than the typical roman or gothic arches. the weird termite-mountain look of his sagrada familia was influenced by structural efficiency concerns. his spires didn't need thick walls nor flying buttresses. his seemingly weird shape was actually more practical. likewise, when it came to details, one is always impressed with the usage of cheap broken tiles as decorations. it was seemingly haphazard, but still beautiful.

of course, there are also some people who HATE his work. maybe it's just too weird for them. oh well, it's their loss.

Generally I'm not rating churches, but I'll make one exception because Sagrada Familia is my favourite church in the world!
1000/10

I'm gonna have to disagree with you guys, based on what I learned in an architecture class about the building. Gaudi's part of the building is flawless, a perfect 10. And, its clearly distinguishable from the newer parts, which look a little mass produced, and certainly are less ornate and organic. For those who don't know, Gaudi did not leave plans for this building. Architects had to conjecture as to what it would look like, had he lived to complete it.

In my opinion, they guessed wrong. One significant thing they screwed up was the extremely un-Gaudi interior. The columns, with those strange egg shaped objects at their tops, look like nothing Gaudi ever did, nor would do. And, the interior is fundamentally repetitive, such as the columns and the ceiling. Gaudi was NEVER repetitive. See his Case Mila in Barcelona for an example of how Gaudi interiors actually looked. Gaudi is possibly my favorite architect, and I love everything he ever designed, but I have to admit that this building will not be faithful to his vision.

Still, it will be an impressive building when complete. Still an 8 or so, just not Gaudi-quality.

In summary, Gaudi's work on the church looks like something carved out of stone. The later work looks like something molded out of plaster.

You sure Gaudi didn't leave plans? I though he did leave plans, but they were destroyed in the Spanish civil war.... (I may be wrong, though).

Anyway, I agree that the Gaudi parts of the building are far far better than the "new" parts of the church.

I love this church. It was on the cover of my Spanish language textbook and every morning I thought to myself, I want to go there so bad. One day. Also, I didn't realize it was still under construction. I thought it was atleast a few hundred years old. Anyway, it is very beautiful. 10/10

in my opinion they should stop the construction. it's better the way it looks now. the main tower would make it a bit too messy...
