Barcelona: Gaudi, Sunlight, Sustenance

Here's the ceiling of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, created by the architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (25 June 1852–10 June 1926).  Construction of La Sagrada Familia began in 1882.  Gaudi spent 40 years working on the Cathedral  Still under construction, it is scheduled to be completed in 2041

Below we see the incredible transparency sculpted in light and created by  Gaudi. This is the right wall of windows of the Sagrada Familia seen at an angle as we enter.

This photo is an identical window straight-on, but on other side of the cathedral: flat, usual, almost ordinary.
