ART DECO SYDNEY
A Persistent Presence

by Claudia Chan Shaw

THE LECTURE

From an incinerator designed by Walter Burley Griffin to the local cinema, pub and milk bar, Art Deco design was not limited to the elegant office buildings of bustling downtown Sydney of the 1930s. Sydney's smart set were early adopters embracing the style at every level. Join Claudia Chan Shaw for an exploration of Art Deco Sydney, a visual culture defined not only through architecture but also through graphic and interior design, the decorative arts and photography.
