Art Deco

When Aida Sorgentini set about designing her hotel she turned to architect, who went onto build the spectacular Radio Mozambique. The hotel is a great example of the genre with its cool elegant facade topped with the distinctive aerial decoration of the time with eyebrows shading the windows from the tropical sun.

In this part of the city there are many fine Art Deco buildings and some original murals. Perhaps this proliferation is as a result of the Portuguese Governor General and his wife’s official visit to Johannesburg in the 1930s.
