The great Catalan architect Gaudi left us a spectacular work and an unfinished creation: the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. This is an immense, unfathomable cathedral project, whose rules and spirit must be understood in order to be completed. A challenge that has occupied his successors for more than a century, it is now approaching its end. Over the last fifteen years, the construction site has been relaunched, notably around the erection of ten additional spires that dominate the building. This work allows us to dive back into the creative process of Gaudi by restoring his sources of inspiration, and his obsessions, through fiction and thanks to 3D technologies. Many obstacles remain and need to be overcome if the work is to be completed in 2026, the date of Gaudi's centenary.
