Architectural and Social Upheaval in the Hutt exhibition celebrates the Modernist Architecture in the Hutt. Following on the popularity of Milk Bar Cowboys, Ice Cream and the Modern Office - 1950's in the Hutt, which featured 10 iconic modernist buildings, community centres and state housing programmes. All still relevant today.

This year's exhibition will highlight the social upheaval of the 1950's in Lower Hutt as a backdrop to the buildings that were defining commercial developments and putting Lower Hutt in the forefront of the Modernist Movement Architecture in New Zealand.

Housing and commercial developments in the Hutt Valley enabled some of New Zealand's leading architects to fully explore town planning and functional design, key elements of the Modernist Movement.

This year's speaker series will feature topics on modernist architecture in the Hutt, mural artist Guy Ngan, government architects, motorbikes and the music of 1950s.

There will be lots of photos on exhibit of Lower Hutt in the 1950's, it will be a great opportunity for many to stroll down memory lane, with memorabilia from Elbe's Milk Bar, costumes from Totally Frocked, music and maybe a motorbike or two!

The exhibition will close on Sunday afternoon by local rock n' roll band, Roadhouse Rockers.
