I can still remember the moment when I emerged from a Barcelona subway station at got my first glimpse of La Sagrada Família. I knew little about Barcelona and had no idea who Gaudí was. It was love at first sight. When I see photos from friends’ trips to Spain, I can see that the construction of the Cathedral has progressed along. It makes me a bit sad, reminding how long since I have been to Barcelona — one of my favorite cities.
A sparkly little collage in honor of Gaudí (who was born on June 25, 1852) is today’s piece for the 2011 Project. If ever there was a “mixed media architect,” it was Antoni Gaudí.
