Spanish photographer, Clement Celma, captured these amazing wide-angle shots of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí’s famous Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família. Construction began in 1882 and then Gaudí took over the project the following year after the original architect, Francisco de Paula del Villar, retired. Construction was projected to be a prolonged effort which was why by the time of Gaudí’s death in 1926, 44 years later, the basilica was only around 25% complete. Construction continued to progress slowly only to be disrupted by the Spanish Civil War and eventually resumed in the 50’s where as it met the midway point in 2010 and is expected to be competed in 2026. The centennial of Gaudí’s death.
