Sagrada Familia: Countdown

Over 130 years since construction first began, a completion date for the Sagrada Familia is now in sight. In this report, we follow the innovative construction techniques being utilised and look back at the history of the building. We follow all the processes from the moment a stone is extracted from the quarry until it is placed on one of the towers. Includes interviews with some of the architects, sculptors and artists responsible for the work and footage of Gaudí’s original models, damaged during the civil war.
