They're the guardians just like the gargoyles in The Chrysle.

Some say that the new Bryant Pk Tower tends to be art decoish.

Parkview Square has an Art-Deco feel in it but the other one doesn't!

I'd like to revive this great thread

"The Park Chidlom", Bangkok (Thailand)

The Park Chidlom is a luxury residence with the highest international standard of luxury in the center of Bangkok. The buildings are situated in Chidlom about 100 meters from the Chidlom BTS station. The Park Chidlom consists of two towers: Chidlom Tower and Somkid Tower. Both towers completed 2007 and together 219 units.

I like the Art Deco style setbacks and tops of the towers.

They should have gone for a different glass color though. And some more setbacks and better refined detailing.

Two examples from The Netherlands for your enjoyment. First, the Rembrandttoren (Rembrandt Tower) in Amsterdam; completed in 1994, it is presently the highest in the city at just under 150m:

Based on the Empire State Building, it looks especially stunning at night, when it's fully illuminated and visible from most parts of the city. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any pictures of the inside - the lobby is quite splendid.

Heading south to Rotterdam, one is greeted by the Millenniumtoren straight across from the central station:

It was finished in 2000 and is 131 meters tall, or 148 including the spire.

I wish more modern buildings had gothic features and designs on them. Like the Woolworth Building, but newer. That's my favourite type of art deco.
