823. The Centenary Swimming Pool and Restaurant, Brisbane

Dear Harry,

The Centenary Pool complex in Brisbane designed by
Council architect James Birrel and built in 1959, has a
wonderful joyous atmosphere. The architect was
influenced by the artworks of Hans Arp when designing
the biomorphic restaurant that echoes some works of
Oscar Niemeyer as well. There is also a striking similarity
between this charming little building and the Club Ariston
in Mar del Plata (Argentina) designed by Marcel Breuer,
Eduardo Catalano, and Franciso Coire in 1948.

Best regards,
