This building as the Sagrada
Familia was not initially projected by Gaudí but by an unknown
architect in September 1888. Antoni
Cornet took the project some months later in march 1889.
Instead of the small budget and the limitations of the initial project,
Gaudí developed an austere project based in a rectangular base with four
floors - the ground included - all built in brick with a top decorated
with false embattlements and in each angle a four branches cross. The
spaces between the embattlements are decorated with ceramic pieces with a
shape remembering a "T" - of S. Therese of Jesus -.
The interior is based in parabolic arches and the illumination is very
well solved, creating alternatives of light and shadows very well adapted
to the characteristics of a place with religious and educative
