I've seen the outside of the Smith Centre in Las Vegas, but had no idea it was this beautiful inside. They've really done a great job of recreating the Art Deco style. It really is an eternal look.

Beautiful, but it doesn't look very Art Deco.

Definitely Art Deco, look at the streamlined, modernized middle section, the setbacks, the horizontally fluted ledges. It's Art Deco that incorporates very classical details.

Here's another Lutyens Art Deco:

A couple of New York's more modest art deco highrises, but they still deserve a post imo since they create a nice little cluster of their own.

R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, Toronto, Ontario:















An amazing amalgam of tradition, technology, engineering, and artistry. It still provides nearly half of the Toronto area's water needs.

Jakarta Kota Station (formerly: BEOS station) (original: 1870, current form: 1926)

The station was built around 1870. It was renovated in 1926 and re-opened on August 19, 1926. It was officially inaugurated on October 8, 1929, by the Dutch Governor-General, A.C.D. de Graeff.

The design of the station was by the Dutch architect Frans Johan Louwrens Ghijsels (born September 8, 1882) and is a combination of Western Art Deco and local architecture styles.

Jakarta Kota Station is a two-storey station surrounded by streets on three sides with one main entrance gate and two side entrance gates. The main entrance gate is recognized by its barrel-vault roof with openings horizontally composed with the top dominated by vertical units (lunettes).

The inside wall of the hall is finished with brown ceramic with rough texture and the outside wall at the bottom of the whole building was covered with green-yellowish plaster. The station floor uses yellow teak and grey wood, and for the platform floor yellow waffle teakwood is used. The platforms are sheltered by canopies supported by steel columns.

A rare old picture of the whole building

The building today:
