GAUDI + DESIGNS


Wearing: American Apparel Bodysuit, Mink Pink HighWaist Shorts and Jeffrey Cambpell Shoes.

Antonio Gaudi was an architect, sculputure, designer, and flat out a genius. La Sagrada Familia is one of Gaudi's most famous works in Barcelona. It is a giant Basilica that has been under construction since 1882 and is not expected to be completed for another 30 to 60 years. The whole thing is amazing; great minds when applied properly can create such wonders. That is what La Sagrada Familia is, a wondreous work of art and design. I also felt a sense of respect for his passion and commitment to his work and to the church. He designed everything, from the beautiful iron doors, sculptures, insane poles with high ceilings to the light stands.
Because the building is still under construction there were scafolds, workers and some dust. However, this in itself is interesting, especially if you visit the museum inside the building; there you can find a workshop full of projects that are to be restored or constructed for all to see. La Sagrada Familia is a truly magnificent building and an absolute must-see amazing piece of art. The best part, I get to see it everyday from my bedroom window. The joys of moving and travelling in Europe.
