There seems to be a little confusion as to what Art Deco is. In addition to being a "total design," meaning a style that can influence and encompass every aspect of a constructed environment, from a factory building facade to the forks on a dinner table, it's also a highly syncretic style. Any vernacular or traditional motif or style could be incorporated into Art Deco, and since it was a bridge to Modernism, even Modernism that alleged total break from the past can be incorporated. Those Neoclassical buildings are definitely Art Deco. Just compare them to more traditionalist Neoclassicism and the design departures become very clear.

These are some of the reasons Art Deco could be considered the zenith of design.

E.g.:

The Indiana War Memorial:



Compared to a more faithful Neoclassical version (The House of the Temple in DC):



You'll see obvious differences, namely the more vertical, flattened, and streamlined design of the memorial, and how the portico has been flattened and reduced to a design motif.

The Industrial Bank Building-Providence RI




The most iconic piece of the Providence skyline, sits empty. It needs a developer/tenant, so if you're in the market for an Art Deco skyscraper in the BosWash corridor in a decaying market. We've got just the skyscraper for you. Locally known as the Superman Building for it's striking resemblance to a former rendition of the Daily Planet Building.
