The BasÃlica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada FamÃlia is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni GaudÃ.
Last month I was in Barcelona for the Smart City Conference and I had the opportunity to visit one of our customers
there – the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s phenomenal architectural work of art. I thought I should share some pictures from the interesting visit. They have been building this Cathedral for around a hundred years and it is expected to take another 30 to finish it. But even in its unfinished state this very interesting building exemplifies the imagination of the man who started it. Gaudi died in an accident many year ago and others are now working hard to complete the cathedral that he envisioned. The museum in the crypt provides insights into the concepts used by Gaudi to come up with his innovative design.
The construction is publicly funded primarily through the sale of tickets to visitors and there are crowds of tourists
even on a week day. iOmniscient is proud to be the provider of the video analytics system that helps them manage
