About the Event

Discover the mid-century jet age of Mad Men-era Adelaide, when a new wave of modernist architecture redefined the city’s streetscapes and skyline. 

This exhibition of photographs by Modernist Adelaide historian and author Stuart Symons, paired with photographs from the City of Adelaide Archives Collection, celebrates some of Adelaide’s iconic modernist buildings. 

Stuart will also present a seminar on the rise of modernism in Adelaide, and host one of his popular Modernist Adelaide walking tours as part of the Open Doors program, where you can learn more about some of the buildings featured in the exhibition.
