Sagrada Familia entertains at La Mercè Festival with vibrant projected light show

Moment Factory was invited by the City of Barcelona and the City of Montreal to create the first sound and light spectacle to be projected on the complex façade of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Ode À La Vie on the Sagrada Familia as the show is called, drew inspiration from Antoni Gaudi's dream to see his façade full of colours. The basilica is expected to be completed by 2016 which coincides with the centennial of Gaudi's death.

This 15 minute-long multimedia show covered the building in a spectrum of lights using video mapping techniques and X-Agora playback system. It was presented within La Mercè Festival in Barcelona which finished last week.

A short video of the event by Moment Factory can be seen below.
