Art Deco Society of New York members are knowledgable, interested travelers, eager to explore interwar wonders close by and around the world. ADSNY is happy to assist our members in visiting and learning how interwar architecture and design is adapted in different cities.
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.

Every two years a city, rich with interwar design, hosts the World Congress on Art Deco. Started in Miami in 1991, these programs bring together experts and aficionados from around the world for a week of in-depth seminars, tours, and social events. Congresses have since taken place in Perth, Australia; Brighton and London, United Kingdom; Los Angeles, USA; Napier, New Zealand; Tulsa, USA; Cape Town, South Africa; New York, USA; Melbourne, Australia; Montreal, Canada; Rio de Janiero, Brazil; Havana, Cuba; Shanghai, China; and most recently in Cleveland, USA.
