40. San Sebastian. Club Nautico y Bahia


Steven,

This is the famous Yacht Club of San Sebastian designed
by Labayen & Aizpurua in 1929. This building was
the only mention of early Spanish Modern Architecture in
the 1932 Hitchcock and Johnson exhibition and exhibition
catalog titled The International Style. Included in the catalog
is this mediocre remark: The marine character of the design
is justified by site and purpose.

Regards
R
