The Sagrada Familia was designed by the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926). Although not finished, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Though building of the Sagrada Família had begun in 1882, Gaudí started working on it in 1883, taking over the project and changing it with his architectural and type of engineering. Gaudí worked on it until he died, and at the time of his death in 1926, less than a quarter of the building was finished. The Sagrada Família's building moved slowly as it needed on private donations (people giving money to it) and was temporarily stopped by the Spanish Civil War only to start again in the 1950s. Building was more than halfway done after 2010 with some of the project's biggest problems remaining and an expected finish date of 2026–100 years after Gaudí's death.
