Manila, Philippines. It is now abandoned but the city plans to revive it. This is one of the few art-deco buildings left as most of it were demolished.

Some Neo Art Deco in London - though they could have done better with the windows and the roof (what's up, Porphyrios?):

Will Rogers Coliseum in Ft. Worth has probably been posted here already:



However, the historic coliseum is getting a brand new supersized Art-Deco neighbor:

It has.

And I wouldn't necessarily say "supersized" for that arena. It's only going to be 14k.

Still, great addition to that area. We're long overdue for a new indoor facility.

Very nice. I do love Mayan Revival Deco. A little odd for a church but still quite nice.
