Event description

Description

Art Deco emerged in the early 20th Century but grew into a major design movement following the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris in 1925. The style is synonymous with the ‘Jazz Age’, which heralded a modern era of glamour and technological progress.

On this Architour we follow Art Deco’s development from a decorative, exuberant style to the pared-back ‘streamlined moderne' of the 1930s by examining the work of Melbourne’s then leading commercial architects. We also explore how art deco architecture uplifted the city during economic depression and how it influenced modern retailing by appealing to an increasingly aspirational society.
