Gaudi’s long-lost chapel to finally be built in Chile

A LONG-LOST project by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi – the first outside Spain – could soon be completed in Chile.

The project for a spiritual centre – originating in 1922 – was inspired by a Franciscan friar asking Gaudi to design a chapel.

“I wish to implement an original work, very original, and I thought of you,” wrote Friar Aranda to Gaudi.

Since 1996, Chile’s Corporacion Gaudi de Triana has been working to make the design a reality.
