The forum's events will be held at San Sebatián's Kursaal Conference Centre..
The creator of this singular structure, the renowned architect Rafael Moneo, designed two translucent glass cubes like «two beached rocks», in a bid to «perpetuate the geography and, as far as possible, emphasise the harmony between the natural and the artificial».
The building won Europe's most prestigious award, the Miles van der Rohe Contemporary Architecture Prize, for its «exceptional character» and its «conceptual, aesthetic, technical and constructive innovation». The Kursaal is the result of an ambitious project to provide San Sebastián and Gipuzkoa with a modern innovative infrastructure to host congresses and cultural events.
