Sagrada Familia- Gaudi’s attention to detail was insane!

If you are into art, math, nature and architecture- you would love it here. Gaudi put them all together beautifully. His use of arches is remarkable. Here is an excerpt about hyperbolas that I found on a website describing his thought process: “The hyperbola is a curve created when we slice a double cone vertically. This type of curve is used in the interior of the Sagrada Familia. The curves create fairly high vaults, and in the main church Gaudi used this to create pillars that resemble the structure of a tree complete with branched tree trunks.”
