With sleek, futuristic lines and exotic flourishes, Art Deco was a design hallmark of the early 20th Century. It swept across the world in the 1920s and 30s, an elegant mix of modernity, adventure and far-flung cultures.
Belfast caught the bug too: offices, department stores, concert halls and the stately Bank of Ireland, an Art Deco centrepiece - all exhibit the understated exuberance of a design phenomenon that is still loved today. Come with us as we uncover the impact this colourful, electric style made, and still makes, on the city of Belfast.
This tour departs from PLACE, 40 Fountain Street.
