Art Deco: discover the style of The City

The architectural style of Art Deco was undoubtedly one of the most extravagant, decorative and exciting styles of design in the 20th century.

All encompassing, the style covered everything from furniture to fashion as well as architecture. It made an instant impact on Sydney’s culture and lifestyle. Sydney’s bold Art Deco skyscrapers, cinemas, flats, hotels and houses expressed a change in the perception of the city and the idea of the modern metropolis.

Revisiting the dynamic style of Sydney’s inter-war period through photography, art and rarely seen architectural treasures, the Art Deco exhibition enabled viewers to look again at Art Deco and to explore the influence and enduring significance of this too often forgotten part of our modern urban heritage.
