Guest Speaker Stuart Symons, Modernist Adelaide
Modernist Adelaide: Discovering our jet-age architecture
From a cult Instagram following to a series of sell-out tours and a bestselling book, Modernist Adelaide historian Stuart Symons is helping Adelaide better appreciate its mid-century heritage.
Stuart will share how his passion for our city’s modernist architecture has built a substantial online following, engaged thousands of people at his architecture tours and events, and culminated in the publication of the first large-scale book about Adelaide’s mid-century architecture.
Stuart will also reveal some of his favourite modernist buildings in Adelaide – from the well-known to those hidden in plain sight. This talk through time will appeal to anyone with a love of Adelaide’s architecture and design, history or just looking up and seeing the beauty in our everyday built environment.
