Modernist Adelaide: 1950s-1970s

Modernist Adelaide celebrates Adelaide’s mid-century architecture through relaxed and informative walking tours (Stuart Symons)

Immerse yourself in the mid-century jet age of Mad Men era Adelaide, when a new wave of Modernist architecture redefined the city’s streetscapes and skyline. From Australia’s first curtain-wall high-rise of the 50s to the International Style of the 60s and the Brutalism of the 70s, this one-hour walk through downtown Adelaide will appeal to anyone with a love of mid-century architecture and design, history or just looking up and seeing the beauty in our everyday built environment.
