Description: This biography which is vast in scope, explores the evolution of the remarkable and most famously unfinished building in the world, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The author, Gijs Van Hensbergen aims to bring insight to the creative genius of Antoni Gaudi, the architect of Sagrada Familia. In addition he traces the development of the Sagrada Familia’s evolution from an expiatory temple to a basilica and opens a window onto its complex Christian narrative. The book provides a chronological history rich in detail and a moving and compelling study of the human aspiration towards the divine. It is a revelatory and authoritative exploration of a building described as the “bible in stone,” its place in history and the genius that created it.
