Destination Deco   Architecture and Design Travel Programs 

In 2017 ADSNY formally launched its exclusive boutique travel program for its members. Destination Deco: Exploring the Roots of Modernism in Israel brought together Israeli architectural, design, and preservation experts to guide us on a unique weeklong tour of Tel Aviv, a world Heritage Site, with more than 4,000 Modernist buildings; Jerusalem’s interwar architectural gems; and Haifa’s stunningly restored Deco treasures. SInce then, this travel series has continued with extended weekend programs in Chicago as well as Dallas–Fort Worth. Highlights  of these programs include included private exhibition tours; architectural walking, bus, and boat tours; visits to private homes and collections; and culture immersions into the unique regional style, design, culture, music, and the arts of the 1920s and 30s.
