We went to an exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum called Modern Times - the Untold Story of Modernism in Australia. It looked at how the movement affected Australian culture, in particular, art, design, fashion, advertising and architecture. There is also a walking tour of specific sites in Sydney, and since a lot of these are in Kings Cross and Potts Point, we went and had a look. They were things like the Gazebo Building, El Alamein Fountain, the Metro Theatre and Cafe, and the Coca Cola sign. I think my favourite is the Gazebo Building, and that's not even because of the oh-so-cute Gazebo Wine Garden on the ground floor...
