Wallpaper Description:
The building works are expected to be completed around 2026, the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death, although the likelihood of meeting this date is disputed. The current project architect is Mark Burry who has made use of computer modelling to aid the design of the intricate form of the church. CAD/CAM technology has been used to speed up the construction of the building; initially, the construction work was expected to last for several hundred years, based on building techniques available in the early 1900s. The construction work calls for many pieces of stone to be machined to unique shapes, each being subtly different from the next, and these pieces are now being machined accurately off-site, reducing the overall construction time. The best description of the current means of construction and future plans is in a catalogue to an exhibition at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum Frankfurt am Main.

There is a current of thought among some renowned Catalan architects advocating a halt to construction, in order to respect Gaudí's original designs (which are not exhaustive and have been partially completed in recent years). The patrons and the politicians with any responsibility in the matter oppose this option.

The church is scheduled to open for worship by September 2010.
