Gaudi

Gaudi started the construction of his cathedral in Barcelona in 1883. He died in 1926 and his cathedral was only 15% completed. Work restarted in 1952 and today the cathedral is 40% completed.
"""The Junta Constructora del Templo, which oversees the project, optimistically predicts that it will be done in 30 years.
Toni Meca, 41, a Barcelona advertising executive and film producer, was not willing to wait. "I wanted to finish the cathedral virtually because I knew it would be the only way for many people to see it completed," he said in a recent interview here. "It is the most important building in the world. Even a child can respond to it because Gaudí based his designs almost solely on forms found in nature."""
