Deco in the port

‘’You look out at the world with one eye and into yourself with the other…”

Amaedeo Modigliani

Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture, and design that appeared in France after World War One. It is influenced by bold geometric forms. None of this sounds like Port Adelaide. Interestingly, the Port is an important enclave of early 20th Century Art Deco architecture. Most examples are government or commercial buildings. Many are still functioning in their original roles. The focus on restoration of buildings from the 1800s has helped preserve these structures in close to original state. The Port is up and coming. It would be a shame if the Art Deco heritage was lost. Park near Lipson Street, and have a walk around with a keen eye and camera. Make sure you find the Masonic centre , which combines three of my facinations – Art Deco, Egyptology and Freemasonry. #PAwhoknew #letsmakelemonade
