You're right here. But I think they are very closely related, both could even be seen as some variation of each other.
In the end, you can't always distinctively separate individual styles.

In another way, expressionism could be seen as the German way of Art Deco.

An example for German Brick Expressionism - and in that way a German "Art deco highrise" (finished in 1928):

City Hall, Camden, New Jersey by shixun, on Flickr

Built in 1931, this Art Deco building with its famed clocktower serves both as the Camden City Hall as well as the Camden NJ County Courthouse. Recent demolitions nearby hsve revealed the main entrance for the first time since its construction.

I think not ; Art-Deco is more flamboyant and dependent on heavy decoration while Expressionism is quite severe and on the "form follows function" path.

Greco, didn't you check my example? The Anzeiger-Hochhaus in Hanover would easily be considered an Art Déco building if built in the United States.

Also, the first ever art deco skyscraper, if i'm not mistaken.


Different variations of the Chrysler. Glad it evolved in the latter one at the end.

I did and while it does have certain Art-Deco features, I still think Art-Deco and Expressionism are different architectural styles. I much prefer Expressionism btw.

The building was created in 1951 by architect "Léonard Morandi", now it's classified as an Art Deco Heritage monument in Casablanca
ps:it doesn't have to be an American style Art Deco to be an Art deco

I wondered why there's quite a number of this green cladded historical buildings in LA. Is it some sort of tiles only produced there? Or a special kind of limestone? Would be interesting to know as it seems to be a regional specification.

I'd rather call it a streamline modern building, by the looks of it.

I have no idea why. I would assume that, because it costs more to build taller buildings (obviously), the taller art deco skyscrapers in New York and Chicago would have less money to spend on more frivolous things like cladding material, and used something cheaper like brick or limestone. In Los Angeles, as the buildings were shorter due to a height restriction, more money was available to spend on cladding. Just a guess.

Re Immeuble Liberté: it definitely is Art Deco if rather late in the day. It's a sub-style, sometimes known as "Ocean Liner" Art Deco. There are examples in the US, UK and Australia. It is more common in houses and small apartment buildings and appeared more in the 1930s.
