... and, who knows, maybe some day they'll actually finish it... So much detail in there that the build seems unending.

They estimate 2050 for finishing it :B

Yes, the amount of detail is incredible :faint:

The last estimate i heard was 2026, a century after Gaudi's death, with the interior open to the public by September next year... Since it's already 125 years into construction, you realise what they mean by the length of time and effort that went into the Mediaeval cathedrals.

Indeed. I really wish they'd do this in our days too... we don't seem to create such amazing architecture anymore. I do like modern architecture too, but it lacks the soul, the passion and the creativity you see in these older buildings. :heart:

lilac-lemur Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd both agree and disagree with that.

A lot of modern architecture is the horrible plastic pastiche of "Postmodernism", which lacks any ideas of the intrinsic nature of detail, for instance, we have the hideous crime against taste that is "Mock Tudor", where buildings have their upper portions plastered on the exterior with mouldings to resemble the beams of mediaeval wattle-and daub upper stories. When Mock Tudor first appeared, the architects at least had some understanding of the functions of the wooden beams that they were emulating, but more recently the beams have been randomly positioned.

On the other hand, I'm a huge fan of a lot of actual Modern architecture, someone who quite likes a lot of the Brutalist buildings that were erected in the wake of the Great Emergency, and the Modernist buildings of the 1970s and 1980s. The Lloyd's building in London is one of the few truly great pieces of architecture in London (I said ONE of the FEW, not "The Only", before someone jumps up and starts shouting), on a par with things like the Forum des Halles in Paris, and so on. On a far more personal note, two of my favourite buildings are from the market-town nearest my home town-land, the town's circular, buttressed, Brutalist library, and the stark white-pebbledash and black glass of a nearby bank.

That's not to say that all Modernist and Brutalist architecture is good, as ever, money became a factor and a lot of Brutalist buildings, in particular, were commissioned by councils who redesigned them to cut costs, thus removing the stark but beautiful geometry in favour of hideous, rigid uniformity.

Then again, there were some truly hideous architecs working alongside Gaudi as well...

I know what you mean. Maybe I expressed myself wrong. I haven't really seen architectural styles such as Art Nouveau being used anymore in buildings. At least not as much as I'd wish them to be. The older architecture is slowly being annihilated by the modern one (which I also sometimes like and sometimes dislike), and that makes me sad. I happen to see this more and more in my city where beautiful old buildings are being demolished instead of being restored, just to build some office building on their foundation. :no: You know how most European cities have an 'old town' area? We have just a couple of tiny streets left, and those are close to be replaced by office buildings. So much for the history of the city.

Yeah, although the big problem is whether the buildings have any architectural or structural merit. In Glasgow and most of west-central Scotland, there's a great sentiment in the public for early 20th century sandstone tenements, because they're "traditional". The problem is that these sandstone tenements were designed as temporary structures to last about 25 years, and so have been mass-produced uniformly, with no architectural thought put in, and were past their "Replace By" date at least 50 years ago, and were often built over old mines. This means that, rather than replacing these crumbling slums, other areas, such as Otago Lane, where there is architectural merit, with properly built, substantial, brick-built architecture, which isn't, however, "traditional" and doesn't "match the character of the city", because it's older than the tenements, are where the redevelopment is happening.

A lot of the problem is public sentiment: the library I mentioned was threatened by demolition because of a public petition describing it as an eye-sore that "didn't fit the character of the town"; thankfully, the planning board passed it up the line and it is now a listed building (giving it protection from modification or demolition, impressive for a building from the 1960s).

As far as the "Old Town" feature... it's something I've discovered, but that we don't have in Ireland - we had little non-military stone architecture before the 17th century, and most of what was built then has either fallen into ruin or been redeveloped in the 19th century...
