You ever been inside? That's where the magic is. The colour in there is insane on a sunny day.

I was not prepared for the sun through the windows

The windows are truly gorgeous on a sunny day. Those colors omg

The outside I'm not that fussed for, the inside is breathtaking. I'd seen pictures but there's nothing like seeing it in person.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Exactly. It's beyond breathtaking. And even beyond the prismatic windows, the organic shapes and tiered domes are so beautiful

It's not quite my preferred style of architecture to say the least but I think it looks quite cool and unusual! Looks a little like castle that was taken from the sea and placed on land. It's a bit visually overwhelming I suppose. I can imagine not liking it.

We're gonna need examples of what you consider good architecture. STAT!

I live in Italy and i'm surrounded by 'traditional' churches and cathedrals. They are beautiful, but the Sagrada Familia is a breath of fresh air.

This is a true unpopular opinion I believe

You're not wrong. The different individual parts of the exterior of the Sagrada Familia are beautiful, but as a whole, it's less than the sum of its parts.

This is the perfect way to describe it

Heresy!!!

i bet this guy prefers brutalismo

Yeah, the exterior doesn't do it for me either. It's certainly very large though lol

People saying it looks awful has definitely not being inside.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Well, it definitely evoked an emotion in you. That's all art can ask for. I was there 2 weeks ago and I gotta say it's monumental. Not good, not bad, just absolutely bonkers.

100% I've always felt it looks like it's melted in a house fire. Or cobbled together by some drunken hippie or that Hudertwasser kook in the desert. I think it's absolutely ghastly.

I have to agree 😬 maybe if I saw it in person I would have a change of heart..

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Nah you wouldn't. Though it's worth taking a guided tour to see how it became this way (too many cooks in the kitchen)

I'm an architecture fan and I agree. I was so disappointed

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Honestly I can only agree. It's an awful looking building.

Looks like a great place to do mushrooms.

Minus the crowds 🤣

I fully agree with you. The monstrosity that is above the main entrance. And what is it with the stupid fruit? I very much doubt that the current version has anything to do with the original plans. Although I have to admit that I never ventured inside since I learned that it does not contain one straight line. I like straight lines.

Just looked it up. It's a monstrosity

by Anonymous 7 months ago

the interior is inmaculate, also what is interesting about this building is that it has "easter eggs" and it conveys a story; the passion of christ.

You wouldn't recognise true art even if it knocked you flat out.

It certainly is over-rated but I wouldn't call it ugly.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

How can this be a masterpiece of architecture, if it takes 140 years and zillions of pesetas to build? It looks ugly and dirty too. Inside was kinda okay.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

I've been there and toured it. The building is absolutely a masterpiece, period. But the saddest part is that people fawn over the building and this accomplishment of mankind, rather than venerating Jesus Christ, the Son of God much more than the mere building.

I don't naturally admire it at first glance like I do with Paris' Notre Dame cathedral for example. I have to tell myself how incredible it is. But then I do realize that it is pretty incredible and different in a refreshing way.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

I think you must have some previous experience with psychedelics to truly appreciate it.

You either dig Gaudi or ya don't.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

You're high. Or not high enough to understand the beauty in that building.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Now that's an unpopular opinion! The Sagrada familia is without a doubt one of the most impressing building in the world.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

I've never cared for it either

Some people find the Sunflower painting by Van Gogh beautiful. I look at it think 'horrible'. Horrible colors and very melancholy . Just awful. And the only reason Mona Lisa is so precious and popular is it was stolen about a century ago. Being 'stolen' made if famous and thus it became extremely valued. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It like Marilyn Monroe (wow) versus Lizzo(bow wow)

You must see St Basil's Cathedral, in Russia, Most beautiful in the world!

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Yeah. It's pretty gross.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

the inside is really cool

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Have you been inside? It's cool. The colors refract all over. Gaudi was also hit by a train making the thing. It is somewhat famous because of who Gaudi was. It's his spiritual message. He was a super religious dude. It's also not really supposed to be elegant. It's unique.

Unpopular opinion win. OP has zero sense of class, aesthetics, art or Design. Do some research on the architect.

by Anonymous 7 months ago

If you reduce whatever is happening by 50%, I think it'll look so much better

by Anonymous 7 months ago

Have you even been inside?
