On Incompleteness


In 1883, Antoni Gaudí began working on the Sagrada Família in Barcelona and before his death managed to complete the crypt, apse and part of the Nativity facade. Work slowed during the 1930s and 40s, then picked up again in the 1950s and a series of architects carried on Gaudí’s work, completing new towers and facades.

In 2000, the central nave vaulting was completed and, since then, architects are back on track to complete the church. The new target date is 2026 – the centenary of Gaudí’s death. Thanks to a computer-generated video released by the Sagrada Familia Foundation and reported on Open Culture, one can see what the basilica may look like when it’s all done, and also take a virtual tour of the interior.
