ATTENTION: All online book orders will be shipped from Friday 21 February 2020 when new stocks will arrive from the printers. My apologies for the slight delay.


Modernist architecture was at the heart of the physical, cultural and social transformation of postwar Adelaide. This architectural revolution was based on new construction technologies, a break with traditional styles and an unwavering belief in design’s ability to shape a better society. Modernist Adelaide: 100 Buildings 1940s–1970s is the first book to provide a large-scale survey of Adelaide’s mid-century architecture. By profiling the architects and clients, specific design features and historical points of interest of 100 existing modernist buildings, Modernist Adelaide: 100 Buildings 1940s–1970s reveals South Australia’s lesser-known but substantial contribution to this architectural movement.
