Part II: Finding Space
In the Summer of 2003, although totally broke, I was able to spend some time in Barcelona on my way to study in Germany. I was absolutely captivated by La Sagrada Familia. What impressed me was that Gaudi was using this traditional form, the cathedral, and infusing it with organic life. The columns are not these unbending Parthenon columns but rhizomic, nodal, seemingly upside down. The building inspired me, made me realize that you can take your own vision and transform the world.
