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.
Thanks kabayan for postinsg this.. The Far Eastern University is truly one of the best and existing art deco buildings in Manila.

The Beacon - Jersey City NJ

NJ - Jersey City: Jersey City Medical Center/Beacon

The Beacon, located on a 14-acre site on Bergen Hill, is a mixed use development project in the former Jersey City Medical Center complex. The center began as the "Charity Hospital" by the Board of Aldermen of Jersey City who bought land at Baldwin Avenue and Montgomery Street in 1882 for a new hospital, and renamed the Jersey City Hospital in 1885. The original building was reserved to men, and a second wing for women was added in 1909. From 1917 to 1931, the original building was renovated and a new 23-story structure for surgery, known as The Orpheum, was added. During the Great Depression, new buildings were added as a Works Progress Administration project. Together, the complex is the largest concentration of Art Deco buildings in New Jersey.

The development company, Metrovest, has overseen an adaptive reuse project that started in 2008 when the first two buildings, The Rialto and Capital, opened with 315 condominium residences, joined by a two-story lobby and a 45,000-square-foot amenity core which features an indoor pool, spa, screening room, and a children's playroom. Plans ultimately call for eight additional buildings in total to be converted to residential and retail use.

Senate House in London. It was the second tallest building in the capital when complete, after St Pauls Cathedral. 19 floors and is 210 feet (64 m).

Thanks for posting those shots of The Beacon, Desertpunk.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon,_Jersey_City

This area has always fascinated me because it's a big pile of art deco skyscrapers way out in Bergen Hill. Most of it sat empty for the better part of 20 years.

Urbanists and architectural preservationists everywhere should feel a little more optimistic knowing these buildings are being renovated.

Pretty scary looking not too long ago:

Yeah, its an amazing building, Tulsa has some amazing art deco architecture! By the way, does anyone else feel like a 400m version of this building would be the coolest thing ever ?

Here is another art deco building in Tulsa:

You're welcome!

The beacon is a remarkable assemblage of Art Deco towers. And it's still spooky on google streetview!

Art-deco and Modernism are truly fantastic styles, but postmodernism just ruins everything. . Why aren't more architects designing in this style anymore?

^ What the heck are you talking about?

Postmodernism is the only style reviving and keeping up Art Deco qualities in architecture up to today, in some way.

Take these for example:



All of these clearly are postmodern buildings. Now tell me again those iconic buildings ruin everything, please.

Great List. Like the Wells Fargo, PPG and Singapore towers. The Detroit one really looks old in the skyline lol. I also think Atlanta and Chicago have lots of postmodern art deco towers as well.
