It was he who developed the project of this grand building, but managed to implement only part of the plan. He gave of the main creation of his life more than 40 years and died in 1926, leaving behind himself drawings, models of architectural elements and the temple itself. During the life of Antonio Gaudi, the apse of the church was built and one of the four towers (the tower of St. Barnabas) of the facade of the Nativity of Christ.
