La Sagrada Familia designs. Models workshop for the La Sagrada Familia ('The Holy Family'), a Roman Catholic church being built in Barcelona, Spain. The construction of this church was started in 1882 by the Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi, and incorporates his geometrical ideas as well as aspects of Cubism and Art Nouveau. Plaster models are made of the design elements before they are sculpted in stone and placed on the building. It was thought that it would take several hundred years to finish the building of the church, but modern computer-aided design and construction methods have been used since the 1980s and may allow completion by around 2026.
