Everyone should know that the schools at the Sagrada Familia, one of Gaudi's most interesting buildings, do not stand in their original location. They originally stood in front of the church (i.e. just where the monumental steps were to be in the 1906 plan). This almost certainly means that they were taken down and rebuilt, but even more importantly, that Gaudi never intended the schools to be a permanent solution.
