I was reading about Gaudi’s extraordinary creation in Barcelona, His Sagrada Familia. The inspiration for his architecture was in nature. He imagined the inside of his church as being in a forest – and as in nature, the strongest lines were often the lightest lines. The church will take over 100 years to complete, yet complete it they will.
Inspiring as this story is, it is still only a narrative. The church is only a building at the end of the day. The emotion of the spiritual will always be a more powerful force.
