Why not just call it 'art deco' in itself? It's not like art deco should just be limited to the 30s. It's an architecture style.

Deco Postmodernism started dying around the late 90s/ early 2000s when some seriously tacky garbage was built.
Maybe now, with the rather large amount of traditional style buildings being built, compared to the last few decades, the 'Post-postmodernist' movement has emerged!

Not quite a building, but perhaps worthy of this thread. This is a monument to the Queen's jubilee, completed in 2004. It was commissioned by Syrian born billionaire Wafic Said, and is located on is Oxfordshire country estate, Tuscmore Park. It was designed by architect, Andrew Lockwood.

Oh wow. I love the Millenium gate in Atlanta, The Esplanade in Toronto, Meier Hall in Elvira College, NY, the monument in Oxfordshire, and the houses in England. All of them are beautiful.
