Meeting with Rafael Moneo & Iñaki Gabilondo

On November 28th, at 18:00, a Special meeting will be held at the Kursaal's Chamber Hall with two renowned personalities taking centre stage: Rafael Moneo and Iñaki Gabilondo.

The prestigious Navarrese architect and author of the Kursaal project will hold a discussion with the great Donostian journalist, Iñaki Gabilondo, in front of an audience. They both know, respect and admire each other. So it was very easy to call them and convince them to talk about the impact of Kursaal as an economic driver and transforming element for the surroundings; about the actual evolution of the building and how it has adapted to new needs and technologies; about cities, citizens, architecture and life. Even more, on a very special occasion that is particularly emotional and evocative for both of them: the 20th anniversary of the inauguration of Kursaal.

Rather than an interview, this is conceived as a conversion, a two-way discussion between two acclaimed professionals and, above all else, two people who really know and love San Sebastian, the region of Guipuzcoa, and its people, buildings, idiosyncrasies, geographical environment, life experiences and love for this land.

Two wise humanists, two superb observers of the urban and human landscape, face to face. This is Kursaal's proposal on this occasion for celebration, for a party, and also for reflection, with our eyes on the future, on what remains of the 21st century and beyond.

Registration to attend this free event will be possible by filling in a form soon to be published by Kursaal on their website:
