A few nights ago, in one of our long, winding, and intellectually indulgent conversations, my good friend Marcel and I were dreaming out loud about possible work relocations. I eventually came around to discussing Barcelona as a place I could see my family being right now and staying into retirement.

I gave some practical views on the international metropolis, the endless culinary delights, and the proximity to Europe and beyond… then I started talking about the artist who’s fingerprint is all over the city, from paving stones and street lamps to parks and palaces. I must have spent more time than I thought talking about La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s masterpiece cathedral that has been under construction for about 135 years: the resemblance to a termite hill, the magical engineering that brings light into the very organic structure as if one were walking through a forest… there I go again. Needless to say, my fascination with this artist, architect, engineer must be contagious, because Marcel sent me this incredible video in the middle of the night.

I hope you enjoy it! I sure did!
