Art Deco Trust

The Art Deco Trust interprets Napier's Art Deco architecture, constructed following the disastrous earthquake of 1931. Guided walks and freedom walks are available and free video screenings are run continuously at the Art Deco Shop. A wide range of publications about the arcitecture of Napier and nearby Hastings are on sale as well as material about the Art Deco and other early 20th century design movements.

The Art Deco walk provides an insight into art history and the human spirit, as it tells the story of Napier's destruction by earthquake and fire, its reconstruction in the depth of the depression and its rediscovery and preservation in the 1980s and 1990s.
