The passion fašade with its straight edges and minimalistic portrayal of people and objects worked well with the dirty grey color, but the intricacy of the nativity fašade wasn't done justice. I read somewhere that Gaudi intended the cathedral to actually be colored so it looked as realistic as possible. Maybe when they finish their construction in 2026 ...
