See Barcelona’s “finished” Sagrada Familia

I had no idea that Gaudi’s masterwork might actually get finished (hey, it’s only been 120 years) in 2026. Check out this nicely rendered 3D visualization:

    Fascinating. Every few seconds you think “oh, now it’s finished”… then a whole new crop of planned spires rise up. They could stop at a number of points and still have an amazing cathedral.

    John, when I read “slightly cheestastic music”, I was assuming you were referring to the song “La Sagrada Familia” by The Alan Parsons Project. But the right 2 minutes snipped from that song would have made great background for this video :-)
