Western Australia is well endowed with examples of architecture
in the art deco style that was popular in the 1930s.The Art Deco
Society of Western Australia was formed to encourage an appreciation
of the cultural heritage value of these buildings and to identify
and preserve the best examples.

of Western Australia was the first such society in Australia,
founded in 1987, with the aim of encouraging appreciation of the
art, design and architecture of the Art Deco period and style.

is an incorporated, not-for-profit, cultural organisation operating
in Western Australia and with associates in other Australian states.
