Seeing Gaudi's architecture was one of the seminal experiences which led to my interest in an aesthetic immersed in organic geometric transandental abstraction. He was the master at combinig form, pattern, surface, color into an ecstatic spatial experience. I recently stumbled upon a current look at his masterwork, Sagrada Famila, via a "60 Minutes" segment. The link below leads to the video episode.
Construction on the Sagrada Familia began in 1883, when famed architect Antoni Gaudi first laid the blueprint for his now-iconic Barcelona church. Gaudi devoted his last years to the project, and 130 years later, it's widely regarded as one of the most stunningly unique buildings on Earth. It also has yet to be completed.
