I would assume that, because of its age, this was hand laid.

And...

Actually, this is not a Skyscraper, but is a nice Art-Deco sample.

There's one fairly tall (130m) building located at the Bund in Shanghai.

It is called Guangming Building and features a very nice Art Deco roof, similar to the Chrysler Building.

It's a shame this gem has been in a state of disrepair for a long period of time. I heard it has been refurbished and reopened last year.

More from Manila

What used to be the Jai-Alai Building in Manila. Now a vacant lot... The local government demolished it to give way to the Manila Justice Building which until now hasn't been built.


Far Eastern University


There used to be lots of Art-Deco buildings in Manila but most of them have been demolished to give way to plain boxes due to people's lack of appreciation for culture, heritage and arts. Sad, but true.

20 Exchange Place, New York

20 Exchange Place was constructed in 1931 as the City Bank Farmers Trust Building. At that time the building was the 4th tallest building in the world and it remained among the top ten tallest buildings in New York until 1970. The building was designed by the architectural firm of Cross and Cross. In 1996, the building was designated a City Landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Upon completion 20 Exchange Place will be converted into Downtown's finest luxury rental apartments, making it one of Lower Manhattan's tallest residential buildings to date

It is good that the metropolitan life north tower is never build, because it would ruined the skyline of New York.

Nebotičnik in Ljubljana (Slovenia), built in 1928-1933. With its 70 m it was upon complection the tallest building in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and the 9th tallest highrise in Europe. Design is mixture of Art Deco and Neoclassical styles.

Folketheateret, Oslo. Used to house the national opera before the new one was completed in 2008. Drawn in 1929 but was not completed until 1935 due to protests and arguing about the location and the funding of the building. Consider to be a good piece of Nordic Art Deco (although I'm not sure there are any other Nordic Art Deco buildings to compete with ) and hated by many due to it resembling Soviet architecture of the time.



The shitty looking building on the right is soon to be replaced with a more pleasant looking structure.


The passageway that leads you through the building:

I love this thread. God bless the past architects for all those art deco buildings

I think art deco is all about structure, regularity but also individuality and beauty. Most are timeless designs and that is why so much people love it. Including me.
