About the event
Explore the allure of modern living in a changing South Australia after World War II. A booming economy and emerging consumer culture led to a desire for enjoyment and a celebration of the pleasures of ‘everyday life’. A new generation of socially mobile individuals sought to define themselves through modern architecture.
Bringing together photographs, drawings and plans, and newspaper and magazine articles from the State Library’s collections, as well as material from other organisations and private family records, this exhibition celebrates the diverse work of architects and firms, including John S Chappel, Robin Boyd, Dickson & Platten, Peter Muller, Lawson, Cheesman & Doley, and others.
Modernist Adelaide is presenting extended walking tours and a free presentation as part of the event program.
