I have just returned from a fantastic voyage that returned me to some locations I had last visited 42 years ago. Gaudi’s Cathedral of the Sacred Family in Barcelona, Spain, was such a wonderful surprise. When I was there long ago, the interior was only sixty years along in its construction, and you could not go inside because it was all full of scaffolding. Now, after more than a hundred years, there are still multiple cranes on the outside where construction continues, but the inside, at least, is completed and was dedicated/consecrated last year by the Pope. This building alone was worth the trip. It reinforces the concept we strive for of timelessness in our designs. Conceived 100 years ago, it will always be an awesome and inspiring space. We never stop learning.
I hope you enjoy a few photos and some day can visit this wild and organic interpretation of the classic Gothic Cathedral. I was blown away.
