a question about a feature on some Art Deco buildings

Is there a specific word for where the glass is set inwards from the main structure/columns?

some examples so you get what i'm on about:

Hey guys, I have a question. In France and my country (which used to be a French colony anyway) art deco buildings are rather different from what I've seen here so far. So are there any sorts of subcategories???

Examples:

Vietnam

The old Bank of Indochina

The old gorverneur residence

image hosted on flickr

Huế Vietnam 4th May 2012 by loose_grip_99, on Flickr

This is the most popular type of apartment buildings in Saigon during the 40s.

the old housing estate for Shell's employees

Call me passéist if you want, but nothing will ever surpass art déco architecture. It has a sense of purpose no modern building can acquire.

Most of these are art-moderne rather than art-deco.

You might not agree with him, but don't call him an idiot for his taste.

Absolutely.
To me buildings like General Electric Building (original), The Trump Building or American Radiator Building (even with its extra garnish, but on art deco its somehow right) are easily the best looking skyscrapers, and even buildings in general there are.

Like the royals of Europe that build their monuments, art deco represented lavish spending and power by their industrial royals that build much of them.

i have another question, is there a word for the feature on many art deco strctures where the shape of the building has like sideways setbacks?
for example, on the tower bit for 70 Pine Street, the building seems to have sideways setbacks carved into the corners of it, is there an official word for this?

I know for that building in particular i think they call it mountain snow cap for the lighter coloured stone at the top of the tower not sure if mountain refers to the setbacks.
