At just over 123 feet tall, their Sagrada Familia will be a 1:4 model of the original. It will be erected on a site in Finland, almost 2,000 miles north of Barcelona. It will take them three weeks to build it this winter, rather than a century. And instead of stone, it will be constructed out of ice.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/83085278/a-1-minute-video-shows-the-completion-of-gaud-s-sagrada-fam-lia A 1-Minute Video Shows The Completion Of Gaudí's Sagrada Família Archinect 2013-09-30T20:47:00-04:00 >2013-09-30T20:47:44-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/66/66lut83m61zzjcsd.jpg" width="514" height="289" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>A new video, released by the Sagrada Fam&iacute;lia Foundation, illustrates what some of those changes might look like.

Today, Burry is among a group of architects leading construction on the church's central tower, which, when completed, will stand 566 feet above the ground, making it the tallest church on Earth. But the fact that they had to use 21st century software to realize a 19th century vision stands as testament to Gaudi's avant garde design language.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/21464711/gaud-s-unfinished-sagrada-fam-lia-does-not-need-a-completion-date Gaudí's unfinished Sagrada Família does not need a completion date Alexander Walter 2011-09-23T14:30:24-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/a7/a7653ef41268fa57ed58641d7df70666.jpg" width="460" height="276" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>"My client is not in a hurry", Antoni Gaud&iacute; is said to have remarked when asked if he was concerned about the time it was taking to build the Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family in Barcelona.
