The Temple of Saint Family will not be finished soon, but it already is striking not only with its dimensions but also with unusual architectural inventions that are though typical for Gaudi’s works. Quaint lines meet each other creating strange angles, forms looking impossible even drawn in sketch, interlace with one another and shape walls and domes rushing upwards. To get the full impression of its greatness, the fact should be taken into account, that all this wonders are just a part of what the master had conceived, and that the project will be finished only by the end of the third decade of our century.
