The Magic of Casino Architecture

When entering a casino, you are transported into another world – not by chance but due to intentional architectural designs.

Old-style casinos were constructed with windowless walls and mazes filled with tempting slot machines that served to distract and confuse their visitors, encouraging them to forget time and spend more money.

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

The Sagrada Familia (Baslica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Famlia) is one of the world’s most iconic structures, having been under construction since 1882 and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A true testament to architect Antoni Gaudi.

Gaudi was inspired by nature in his architectural style, as evidenced by the basilica’s structure. Its organic shapes and tree-like columns symbolized his desire to merge architecture with nature.

Gaudi made his life’s mission to complete the Sagrada Familia his focus and dedicated much of his life to seeing it completed – even living there to oversee its construction! Following Gaudi’s death in 1926, his assistant Domenec Sugranes continued with its completion and is expected to reach 100 years on completion by 2026 – well worth making time to see this incredible structure for yourself! Currently at 70% complete, its completion should coincide with 100th year anniversary of Gaudi’s passing (it should reach completion by then). Don’t hesitate – take time out to see this incredible structure for yourself!
