Art Deco in Western Australia

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.

The Art Deco Society 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.

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

ADSWA is a founding member of the International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS) that provides worldwide support for the protection of Art Deco heritage.
