Modernist Adelaide Walking Tour
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. Stuart Symons’ award-winning tours of Adelaide’s 50s, 60s and 70s modernist gems have earned international acclaim, a local cult following and the 2021 City of Adelaide Prize Commendation. 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 entertaining walk through time will appeal to anyone with a love of architecture and design, history or just looking up and seeing the beauty in our everyday built environment.
‘To showcase and talk about great twentieth-century buildings in Adelaide is jewel-like. It’s a great asset.’ – Kevin McLeod, Grand Designs
The walk will begin out the front of the former Crack Kitchen at 13 Franklin Street, Adelaide. Although the café has closed, this is still our meeting point
