Sagrada Familia

15 10 2014

Sagrada Familia is probably the last, God-forbid, greatest Church of our times that is under construction. Blatant and scandalous comments are rampant against the great Antoni Gaudi’s work of, God inspired, art. Lately, “controversial” is the adjective used to describe the on-going work of art.

Take a look at some of the past comments:

George Orwell

George Orwell said it was “one of the most hideous buildings in the world” and rather hoped it would be destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.

Enric Massip

The architect Enric Massip, a member of the Advisory Committee to the City of Barcelona, denounced the basilica as “an artificially inflated space lacking in soul.”


Now take a look at the some of the awe-inspiring & breathtaking architecture that is Sagrada Familia:

Then take a look at the architecture created by one of the critics, Enric Massip:

…enough said.

 

God bless, protect and give strength to Sagrada Familia and all the amazing folks responsible for the on-going construction of the work of God. Please pray for the safe completion of the Gaudi’s greatest masterpiece, so it can stand testament to the Grace & Inspiration of Christ Jesus. Amen!

 

Sagrada Família church in Barcelona has been under construction for 128 years. “My Client is in no hurry,” Antoni Gaudí once said, referring to God.

Microsoft’s new Website authoring tool- Sway

2 10 2014

 

Go to Sway (http:/Sway.com/)

Microsoft is launching Sway today, a new app that’s part of the company’s Office family of products. It will sit alongside the regular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote apps as a rich content creation tool. In its most basic form, Sway allows anyone to create a beautiful website from just images and text without any effort, and it’s all what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) — a modern and simple version of FrontPage. Despite that, Microsoft is taking an interesting approach with Sway, using the company’s powerful Azure cloud servers to suggest page layouts and quickly render content on the fly.
