Moving to the Modern: Art Deco in South Australian Architecture

Carol Cosgrove (2008/9 DEWNR Built Heritage Research Fellow)

Art Deco celebrated the exciting and dramatic aspects of the machine age through the use of distinctive decorative elements. The Art Deco style appeared in a range of South Australian inter-war buildings, including those for commercial purposes such as banks, insurance offices, shops, showrooms, and hotels; local council chambers; factory administration buildings; cinemas and other public entertainment venues; town halls and private residences.
