A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT SAGRADA FAMILIA TO COMMEMORATE TO GAUDI

Madrid / Coinciding with the anniversary of the birth of Antoni Gaudi, on June 25, 1852, National Geographic announced the production of a documentary about the construction work of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

The production, shot in Spain in collaboration with the Catalan production company Minoría Absoluta, will be part of the series “Megaestructuras”, one of the longest running of National Geographic, whose aim is to show how the most complex architecture and engineering works have been carried out in the history.

“Megaestructuras: Sagrada Familia” will be released in Spain in the fall of 2018 and globally through the network of international channels of National Geographic, distributed in 172 countries and 43 languages, as indicated by the chain, belonging to the Fox group, in a press release.

The documentary shows the challenge of building a stone cathedral in the 21st century, in the midst of an urban environment such as the center of Barcelona, and with the added difficulty of having hundreds of visitors who day by day come to admire the work posthumous by Antoni Gaudí.

The architect from Reus worked for 43 years in the temple. In 1914 he decided to renounce all his projects to focus only on this, to which he dedicated his life until his death, because of an accident, in 1926. His mortal remains rest at the chapel of the Virgen del Carmen, in the crypt of the temple.

It is planned that the construction of the cathedral will conclude in commemoration of the centenary of the death of the architect, in 2026.

“Megaestructuras” visits the Sagrada Familia when it is immersed in the final process of its construction, specifically, of the six towers that will complete the whole church.

The documentary involves those responsible who are now at the forefront of the works: architects, technicians, stonemasons and artisans of stone and glass, who comment before the camera on the method they use to speed up the process and get it done in time. (June 27, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
