Step inside Adelaide’s mid-century marvels with author/historian Stuart Symons.

Our city is filled with architectural triumphs, but as well as aesthetic and functional value, these places tell stories about the rapid transformation of culture, communities and spaces in post-war Adelaide.

Stuart Symons, author of Modernist Adelaide: 100 buildings 19403 – 1970s, shares his favourite local buildings, introduces the great minds that designed and built them, and explores what they can tell us about ourselves in 2023.

A fascinating author talk for anyone interested in architecture, design, local history, society and culture, placemaking, retro and mid-century modern chic, construction or even industrial design. Books available for purchase at the event.
