i Think The Tower in Dubai is worthy of being called a very good Art deco revival or modernism.

it has classic and artful lines and i isent a cheap copy of proper art deco neither. its original and art deco.

You are so right! There is a tendency these days to label almost any building designed in the 1920's and 1930's as Art Deco which is absurd. Art Deco was a new style of architecture, sometimes i'ts true, using elements from the past, but in a more "modernist" way. NYC's Chrysler & Empire State are true Art Deco Skyscrapers in the way that Toronto's Royal York Hotel or Chicago's Tribune Tower are not.

New York has no rivals when it comes to art deco.
I agree, I have always loved the RCA building (now GE), it's pure art deco and the lobby is stunning using the finest materials which was a hallmark of the style and so different to many of today's "economy" looking interiors. The USA has probably the finest examples of art deco, certainly when it comes to skyscrapers anyway, and though it might be a bit down at heel at the moment, Detroit is certainly a rival to NYC, it has some of the finest.

Not a skyscraper but the a giant art deco church in Brussels, Belgium
Basilica of the sacred heart (1905)
The dome is 89 meters high.

THREE of New Yorks most amazing art deco skyscrapers have no appeared yet!
First, the American Radiator Building: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ilnycilnyc/3664960505/

Second, the Woolworth Building, the grandfather of New York skyscrapers: http://www.flickr.com/photos/emilio_guerra/4289700424/

And finally, and my favourite, 40 Wall Street: http://www.flickr.com/photos/emilio_guerra/4288930197/

I do not own any of those photos.

This, so much. The Tower is something original, with a modern take on art deco, and it doesn't look cheap. Somebody posted one here that's a really bad Chrysler knock-off, and I don't mean the twins. (It had a green top). Now THAT's tacky as hell.

Woolworth is Gothic, not art deco.

~ PENOBSCOT BUILDING - DETROIT, MI - USA ~

This building predates the Empire State Building by 3 years, and may have been a key influence.

Yep, and keep in mind this was well before the Nazi association with swastikas.
