From my room here in Barcelona, I do have a splendid view on what one day should become the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Well, if they ever stop building the thing that is. In 1884 Antoni Plàcid Guillem Gaudí i Cornet, the architect who dreamed it up, finished the crypt. Since then a lot of work has been done, redone, rethought… but not a lot is finished. Seen the speed and enthusiasm of the workers I can spot from my room, it will take another generation. Or two. And will someone please tell the council of architects continuing the design to shift to lighter mushrooms? Gaudi’s part was ok. They are now making it butt-ugly. 🙁
