Barcelona: Sagrada Familia






The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona. Designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926), his work on the building is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1882, construction of Sagrada Família began under architect Francisco de Paula del Villar. In 1883, when Villar resigned, Gaudí took over as chief architect, transforming the project with his architectural and engineering style, combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms. Gaudí devoted the remainder of his life to the project, and he is buried in the crypt. At the time of his death in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. Relying solely on private donations, Sagrada Familia's construction progressed slowly and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War. In July 1936, revolutionaries set fire to the crypt and broke their way into the workshop, partially destroying Gaudí's original plans, drawings and plaster models, which led to 16 years work to piece together the fragments of the master model. Construction resumed to intermittent progress in the 1950s. Advancements in technologies such as computer aided design and computerised numerical control (CNC) have since enabled faster progress and construction past the midpoint in 2010. However, some of the project's greatest challenges remain, including the construction of ten more spires, each symbolising an important Biblical figure in the New Testament. It is anticipated that the building can be completed by 2026, the centenary of Gaudí's death.

The higher the building the taller the tale?

Specifications:
Length: 113m.
Nave width: 21m.
Width across transepts: 50m.
Height: 76.8 m (central spire).
Number of towers: 3.
Number of spires: 3.
Spire height: 76.8 m (crossing), 60.5 m (western).


I. It is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires.
II. The stone is sandstone and came from a quarry on the south side of Lichfield.
III. The walls of the nave lean outwards slightly, due to the weight of stone used in the ceiling vaulting.
IV. Some 200–300 tons of which was removed during renovation work to prevent the walls leaning further.

Columnae corinthiae praeter capitula omnes symmetrias habent uti ionicae,

quod ionici capituli altitudo tertia pars est crassitudinis columnae, corinthii tota crassitudo scapi.
igitur quod duae partes e crassitudine corinthiorum adiciuntur,
efficiunt excelsitate speciem earum graciliorem.
