A short animating film shows the completion of Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família

The completion of Art Nouveau architect Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família basilica in Barcelona is simulated in this movie released to show the final stages of construction anticipated before 2026, 100 years after the death of the architect.

The one-minute video published on the Sagrada Familia Foundation’s Youtube channel shows each of the stages left and how the basilica will look when completed.

It combines helicopter footage of the current building with computer-animated renders to show spires, a central cupola and other remaining structures rise from nothing.
