Sagrada Família Basilica: Façana de la Passió Mark Burry
Undertaken by Melbourne architects in collaboration with the head architects of the Sagrada Família Basilica in Barcelona, Spain, the completion of Antonio Gaudí’s design for the Passion Façade narthex of the Sagrada Família Basilica is based faithfully on Gaudí’s detailed original sketch, dating from 1917, but worked on over the years leading to his death in 1926. Construction of the lower region of the narthex was completed in 1979, and the definitive design for the upper section commenced in 2001. The whole assembly was completed in 2018.
