Adelaide was fertile ground for architectural experimentation in the 1940s-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 of Mad Men-era Adelaide. From Australia’s first curtain-wall high-rise of the 50s to the brutalism of the 70s, this engaging talk through time will appeal to anyone with a love of mid-century architecture and design. Bookings essential.
