Hypnotic Views of the Sagrada Familia Ceiling by Clement Celma
Clement Celma is a photographer, videographer and designer based in Barcelona, Spain. In his wonderful photo series on Gaudi Architecture (many taken with a fisheye lens), Celma captures the organic beauty of Gaudi’s intricate designs.
In the select images below, we check out the awe-inspiring ceiling of Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by legendary Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926). Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Construction began on 19 March 1882 from a project by the diocesan architect Francisco de Paula del Villar (1828-1901). At the end of 1883 Gaudi was commissioned to carry on the works, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea.
It has always been an expiatory church, which means that since the outset, it has been built from donations. Still under construction, it is hoped that the church will be completed some time in the first third of the 21st century.
