Liquid Stone: Unlocking Gaudi's Secrets Trailer (2010)
Trailer for the documentary Liquid Stone: Unlocking Gaudi's Secrets, which screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival 2010.
The Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona is Antoni Gaudi's most ambitious creation. Begun in the 19th century, it is still under construction today. Gaudi spent 43 years of his life working on the church. Realizing it would not be completed within in his lifetime, he left intricate design models encoded with an ingenious geometrical system that would enable future generations to complete it. With his untimely death in 1926 and the destruction of the precious models during the Spanish Civil War, coupled with a sculptural style of building that was utterly unique, the task of continuing posed a daunting enigma for those who followed. Noone understood the complex geometry needed to interpret the models and translate them into ways of building. In 1979, 23-year old New Zealand architect Mark Burry met two of the directors who had worked with Gaudi and was offered the chance to unlock the master's code. And now this famously unfinished building is close to being completed.
