Magic cube 4x4x4 composed with 12 magic squares, including the one of Gaudi:
Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), was a Catalan architect. In one of his major creations, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, he used the following magic square, among many other symbolic and decorative element:
The magic constant is 33, probably referring to the commonly accepted age of Christ'a death. This magic square is singular, in the sense that it includes the numbers 10 and 14 twice . However, it complies with the same construction rules as Dürer's magic square. The magic constant shows up in many combinations (diagonals, 4 corners, 4 central cells, ...).
According to my method, it is thus very simple to include this square into a magic cube, the same way I used with Dürer's magic square (you may download the Excel file at the bottom of this page):
Dürer and Gaudi magic cubes built according to this method, probably have an infinity of solutions.
