I thought Architects were Kings and Emperors, boy, I was wrong again. According to Antonio Gaudi, some of us are God and Goddess.
What amazed me the most is how he solved the structural construction of the building. Antonio Gaudí spend lots of work on studies for the design, and developed a new method of structural calculation based on a stereostatic model built with cords and small sacks of pellets. First he traced the outline of the church on a wooden board (1:10 scale), which was then hung on a ceiling. Cords were hung from the points where columns were to be placed, and everything else is up to God and gravity.
