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 are available for purchase at the event.
