A series of prints inspired by our very own Art Deco architecture

Description:

Our built heritage plays an important role in the ongoing story of our city. Modern cities such as Brisbane embraced Art Deco style in its architecture as it swept the world during the interwar period. From inner
city landmarks such as the striking McWhirters department store to
lesser-known gems further afield like the streamlined Archerfield Airport administration building, Brisbane has a significant range of intriguing and beautiful Art Deco buildings.

 

This publication documents and celebrates a selection of our favourite residential and commercial examples. Written contributions from a range
of authors are complemented by stunning modern photography and
historic archive imagery, taking readers on a journey through this
fascinating era. The articles not only describe the aesthetic and
architectural features, but also delve into the associated social history.

 

Brisbane Art Deco: Stories of our Built Heritage is a charming and
informative reference, and offers a colourful insight into Brisbane’s
built heritage and the life and times of this dynamic city.
