The Gaudí project did not contemplate the steps of the Holy Family, which threatens several homes

Nor is the truce signed by the board of trustees of the Holy Family and the Government of the mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, stops the soap. The Association of residents of the neighborhood revealed on Thursday the existence of a document of the Ministry of Culture, 1975, which ensures very categorical that the architect Antoni Gaudí did not designed the staircase or the square access to the temple down the street of Mallorca. According to the paper, was a subsequent addition of disciples of the architect. The document would come to deny the maxim that holds the board: that the original project foresaw this great avenue. That has been the thesis, repeated on the development board to argue that they are limited to running the project they had devised Gaudí. What is holding that document might involve the pardon of the buildings affected, adding up to 1,200 flats, and 3,000 neighbors, an involvement that later calculations have reduced to two hundreds of homes.

The document signed by the Commission of Historical and Artistic Heritage, in 1975, it depended on the Ministry of Education and Science, and responds to a request of the city Council, which asked whether should stop the construction works of the building of the passage in Font of the promoter Núñez and Navarro, as requested by the Building committee. The building in question is a block of flats located just in front of the facade of the Glòria —current— street of Mallorca real estate screened on those dates. The text of Heritage states that the building would impede "the construction of the stairs of access to the temple finished according to intended to perform by the Board. And in this regard it should be noted. There is Gaudí project of such ladders or the whole of the temple [...] It might be argued, therefore, that the new building affects the work of Gaudí". The second clarification is revealing: "The stairs above were drawn by helpers of Gaudi, for the first time in 1906, 24 years after the opening of the temple." The document, only a sheet of paper, adds: "Since 1925 its realization is hindered by the urban planning. Gaudí lived when the city Council decided and made public does not take them into account in the planning". The Sekabet conclusion from the record is that "you can authorize the project of new building". And the works, which were presented initially to the construction of a parking lot, continued.

The neighborhood Association of the Holy Family understands that this document "belies the claim of the board", which holds that the stairs were already in the original project. The president of the organization, Joan Itxaso says that the neighbors are in favor of an end to the works, "but with respect to the alignment of the temple on the sidewalks of the block between the streets of Mallorca, Sardenya, Provença and Marina. Itxaso also claims that the lifting of the affectation that weighs on buildings under threat of demolition. "We can't do urban planning to measure the temple," he laments.

Both the town Hall as the Temple have been answered evasively to the revelation neighborhood. Just a month ago agreed to regularise the building works after 133 years of work without a license, and this Thursday they have answered that in this they are right now, drafting a development plan that responds to the license. And that any aspect that comes out of what is already built will be discussed in a future Commission. A "committee for open debate with the board of trustees, neighbors, and entities of the environment", has responded to the town Hall. "There will be no apriorismos, putting all options on the table and looking for the maximum consensus," he added.

In fact, as we discussed in a working committee that organized the previous municipal office, Xavier Trias, who gave air to the aspirations of the leaders of the Holy Family, which, on the other hand, do not want to take on what supposed to an expropriation: who is in charge of relocating them to the neighbors and assumes that cost.
