Saying Goodbye! Kursaal.


Rafael Moneo’s project, one of the great Spanish architects of our days from Navarra. This project, Palacio de Congresos kursaal won the Mies Van der Rohe Award in 2001. Rafael Moneo describes this building as the stones lost at Mar Cantabrico. I must confess that fascinated me more the texture of the walls, contrasting with the fading of the building. The impact of this building’s giant, the scale of the program too, but seen from Mount Urgull fades amid the sand and other surrounding buildings.¬†However i’s an icon of San Sebastian that prevails by its impact.
