Social Facilities II
Leisure, Sports, Commerce, Tourism and Transportation
This exhibition shows modern architecture of leisure, sports, commerce, transport and tourism built in Spain and Portugal between 1925 and 1965. It completes the presentation of work the Iberian DOCOMOMO Foundation has done on social facilities. The exhibition presented the previous year covered civic infrastructure, most of these buildings being the result of functional policies and programmes set up by the state; this new exhibition displays buildings promoted by civil society, with modern forms that were a response to needs and also satisfied aspirations.
