nut or genius?

Construction of Sagrada Família began with another architect's plans in 1882, and could be finished with Gaudi's some time in the first third of the 21st century.

"Who knows if we have given this diploma to a nut or to a genius. Time will tell."
- Regarding newly minted Barcelona architect Antonio Gaudi [1852-1926], who posited that "originality consists in returning to the origin."
