Modernist Adelaide

Stuart Symons

Modernist Adelaide, founded by mid-century architecture historian Stuart Symons, enhances the public experience of the city and activates and enlivens our streets through regular city walking tours, house tours, publications, exhibitions, presentations, media appearances and online.

Profiling the architects, clients, design and history of Adelaide’s modernist buildings of the 1940s–70s, Modernist Adelaide has unearthed a richness and value in these buildings and our city – raising the community profile of Adelaide’s modernist architectural heritage and bringing it to new audiences.

More than 2,000 people have attended 70 Modernist Adelaide tours and events, the book Modernist Adelaide: 100 Buildings 1940s–1970s has sold more than 1000 copies, and dozens of media appearances, talks, panel discussions, exhibitions and a large online following have engaged the community about Adelaide’s architectural history, contributed to the economic growth of the city and built public appreciation that influences heritage preservation and retention/reuse of heritage fabric.
