1. General Description
The MIT Sagrada Familia Project of the School of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology proposes to develop a IMAX 3D 70 mm film of the Expiatory Church of Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi. It will incorporate computer animation of unbuilt portions of the building, film shot on location, and archival images. The film will reveal, for the first time, the completed design as conceived by Gaudi - allowing viewers to experience the extraordinary space of the sanctuary, and the completed exterior in the context of Barcelona. It will tell the fascinating story of Gaudi's career, his vision of the Sagrada Familia, and the continuing attempts to complete the building since Gaudi's death in 1926. The film shall run approximately 10 minutes. The completion date is November 31, 1999.
