Overview

Adelaide was fertile ground for architectural experimentation in the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, when a new breed of forward-thinking architects redefined the city by embracing the aesthetic, technological and environmental aspirations of modernist architecture.

To celebrate the Modernist Adelaide: 1940s–1970s exhibition at the City Library, join Stuart Symons, Founder of Modernist Adelaide and South Australian Emerging Historian of the Year, to discover the mid-century jet-age of Mad-Men-era Adelaide.

From Australia’s first curtain-wall high-rise of the 50s to the international style of the 60s and the brutalism of the 70s, this engaging talk through time will appeal to anyone with a love of mid-century architecture and design.

Admission to this event is free. Bookings are essential.
