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.
