Beautiful choices, i have changed my opinion and changed my favourite art deco building, it's no the american international building.

Not only does it stand out today in the 1940s it was the pinnacle of vertical Manhattan heres some pics:

it was the tallest building in the beating heart of the worlds financial centre for 39 years and then it was the tallest for the last 10 and it's strange to think that next year it will be 80 years old, i personally love it.

It is amazing how such a massive building when it was built is just a part of the crowd now. It is very beautiful though, a true piece of tradition and authenticity in the big apple.

Au ja, how I love the Ullsteinhaus. Hopefully they'll build the thus inspired little highrise behind Alexa mall, Berlin could need more such architecture.

Just my opinion. If Berlin could develop more to one highrise-style, it should be something inspired by this.

The Kollhoff-Tower is also a great example for that.

This tower is part of a 'set' that were built to ventilate the tunnel. All these towers were built in the art deco style and they lie on both sides of the mersey. Heres the tallest one in Birkenhead:

Thankfully all these towers still exist and i believe they are some of the finest pieces of art deco in Britain

The Fuller Building New York, 1929

Fuller Building


Midtown Manhattan

The Fuller Building, designed by the prolific architectural firm of Walker & Gillette, and built in 1928-29 as the home office for one of the largest and most important construction firms in America, is a particularly fine example of the Art Deco skyscraper. One of the large group of tall office buildings constructed in midtown Manhattan during the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Fuller Building, at 57th Street and Madison Avenue, was one of the first located so far north in Manhattan. In a unique arrangement responding to the character of its neighborhood, the building's first six floors were designed to house high quality shops and art galleries which could accommodate multi-level shopping.

The mixed use nature of the building is reflected in its design: the black granite cladding of the lower floors surrounds large display windows for retail sales, while above this the office floors are finished in light stone with smaller window openings. In a modernistic interpretation of classical forms, bold, geometric patterns at the setbacks and at the top of the building take the place of cornices and are complemented by a large sculpture over the front doors by the noted modem sculptor Elie Nadelman. Today the building continues its role as distinguished home to numerous art galleries and offices on Manhattan's exclusive East 57th Street.

Its more Expressionism (Chilehaus) than Art-Deco, though.
