In a segment on CNN International on the ongoing work on Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, The Architect’s Newspaper was pleased to be asked to comment on architectural icons around the world. In this abbreviated clip, executive editor Alan G. Brake said that iconic buildings should be unique but still capture the spirit of their place. Later in the segment (not included), he went on to argue that iconic buildings add to cities but don’t make cities great on their own. People return to Paris again and again because it’s a great city, not to see the Eiffel Tower repeatedly. We look forward to seeing Gaudi’s vision completed in 2026.

Residents of Barcelona had the opportunity to see Antoni Gaudi’s 120-year-old La Sagrada Familia in a new light recently as Montreal-based media studio and light artists Moment Factory projection mapped a multimedia display over the cathedral’s facade. While Gaudi’s signature stone carvings portraying dripping stone, fanciful plant forms, and intricate religious displays in their normally sand-colored hue are usually enough to dazzle the viewers eye, the gaudy splash provided one psychedelic experience.
