Event description

Description

On this walk we'll look at some marvellous 'statement' architecture constructed in the 1930s during a design period known as Art Deco

The modernist architecture of this era with its clean geometric lines, simplicity, functionality and minimal decorative enhancement was designed to impress and inspire – a kind of "understated showing-off" pointing to a positive bright future – seen as a complete change from the fussiness of the Victorian and Edwardian periods with their over-embellishments, swirls and flourishes.

Excellent examples of modernism and deco style are hiding in plain view at almost at every junction in Holloway – we'll see it implemented on places of entertainment, commerce, business, health and sport.

The walk starts near the Nag's Head shopping area* and finishes a few minutes from Holloway Road tube station.
