Citroën building, Brussels Belgium

Architect Alexis Dumont, 1933-34

Europe's biggest showroom/garage, inspired on American model. Build only with steel and glass. Several renovations (most of them after the war)

Kaaitheater, Brussels, Belgium:

The theater was built from 1929 to 1932 on the site of a former Luna Park, and its style was somewhere between art deco and modernism. The architect was Marcel Driesmans. As well as the theatre itself, the complex contained 42 flats and a coffee house. In the side wing, along the canal, there were a café, a conference room, a foyer, offices for the management and 24 private offices. The building displayed an interesting urban-planning concept: living, working and recreation in one entity.







as you can see here, both buildings are located next to each other:

Here are two examples from Prague:


(source wikimedia.com)

The Czech National Bank.




And U Černé Matky Boží (House of the black Mother of God), a nice example of Kubismus. You can see the golden statue on the right corner, it's a black Maria - hence the name.

Fantastic collection of buildings! Could you add some locations for the most famous ones? For instance, the last one and the 'T-terminal'?
