3D printing in Barcelona

Saturated with history, Barcelona is the home of Gaudi, a master architect with brilliant, wacky and radical vision. We were lucky enough to tour several of his buildings while visiting. The ultimate was Sagrada Familia, his masterpiece basilica in the center of Barcelona. It is a world heritage site. The building is still being built according to his plans and will not be completed until at least 2026. A perfect example of "more is more"

One surprising thing was the use of 3D printing to recreate some of his designs at scale for the architects and builders. An interesting juxtaposition of the old with the new.
