To be a non-normal Magic Square and a non-Sagrada Família magic square, and yet follow the traditional rules of a Magic Square variant, the Magic Square does not need the numbers to begin with the first number of the sequence or even be consecutively sequential within the given sequence -- but unique.

Ady had provided an example of a Sagrada Familia magic square solution in his post.

My earlier post posed the question as to whether this non-normal Magic Square problem was meant to be a Sagrada Familia magic square. Also was posed whether a non-Sagrada Familia magic square, i.e., more traditional form of magic square (but, of course obviously not a traditional, also known as normal magic square) existed for a 4x4 matrix where only positive binary palindrome numbers are considered - and, more specifically, if one is constrained to the given constant of 188 (base-10).

This question has effectively been answered in the next post by Harry. The answer being that a solution exists that is not a Sagrada Familia magic square, as it has no duplicated numbers.
