Torrens Park Modern – SOLD OUT

July 21 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN SOLD OUT

The foothills suburb of Torrens Park was fertile ground for architectural experimentation in the 1950s and 1960s, where some of Adelaide’s most forward-thinking architects redefined the modern home in this sloping bushland setting.

Keith Neighbour AM was one of this new breed of architects. His own house, built in 1958, is a superb example of restrained functional design using exposed natural materials.

Join Modernist Adelaide’s Stuart Symons for an exclusive tour of this remarkable house and discover how it embraced the aesthetic, technological and environmental aspirations of modernist architecture.

Bookings essential. Ticketholders will be emailed the address a few days before the event.

Australian Institute of Architects members may access $20 tickets using the discount code AIAmember.
