Investigation into Antoni Gaudi’s Final Design Models for the Sagrada Familia Church

ARC – 2000 -2002

Chief investigators: Mark Burry, Research Assistant: Jane Burry

Project Summary:
This project is creating a new scholarly understanding of the Sagrada Família Church in Barcelona, the greatest work of the architect Antoni Gaudí, a major building in the history of architecture and a building that remains under construction today. By adapting a computer-aided design technique known as parametric design to create designs that are consistent with all of the available historical information on the church, new insights are gained into Gaudí’s own generative system. The results from these investigations are used to specify how the Church is actually being completed, thus making the church itself a statement of Gaudí’s design intent.
