Forget the Gold Medal, the om and peerages - especially those of the life variety - such gongs only honour the living. One architect is in line for something grander, and available only to the dead. The Archbishop of Barcelona, a fan of Sagrada Familia and other cockleshell confections, has proposed Antonio Gaudi for canonisation. Most architects probably think they can claim two of the three conditions for sainthood - working miracles and being in more than one place at the same time - but would baulk at the third, martyrdom. Having been knocked down by a tram, though, Gaudi underwent a peculiarly early twentieth-century version of that condition.
