The Résidence de la Cambre is the first high-rise building ever built in Brussels. It was buit in 1938-1939 according to the plans of architect Marcel Peeters in a style inspired by New York Art Deco architecture. The 17-story residential tower, which stands on Boulevard Général Jacques / Generaal Jacqueslaan near the Place de l’Étoile / Sterrenplein in Ixelles, was classified as a historical monument on July 14, 2005. In April 2007, EUR 740,000 were granted by the government of Brussels-Capital Region for renovating the façade and roof.

You already showed us better looking buildings from Belgrade, so why this one as well?


NIRWANA, The Hague (1927-1930); first appartment building in the Netherlands, designed bij Jan Duiker in collaboration with J.G. Wiebenga.

It's not only about how good looking some building is. This building was built in the 1930' but it could easily pass for some residential building from 1960' or 1970'....

You could also say that about Nirwana: it has a certain resemblance with the Rachofsky House by Richard Meier (1996).


The point is, each page typically consists of 20 posts and most posts contain many photo's.
Would everybody be so kind to select just a few photo's to put in a single post?
Otherwise it really takes too much time to download a page: for instance page 4!

It MAY have looked better when it was just finished, but time wasn't easy on this one.

I've found a pic of the building when it was just finished. I guess you would still prefer the building on the left.

and here's a pic after German bombing of 1941 , the specific building was untouched

Air defense ministry HQ, Belgrade-Zemun ( Dragisa Brasovan, 1935.)







The building was seriously hit by NATO in 1999., the part that collapsed was rebuilt, but the building is still abandoned and waiting for a reconstruction...

Thanks for sharing! Good to see it is still standing... Is this the European version of Streamline-architecture?

And don't forget to credit your sources.
Now that Rascian isn't 'flooding' anymore (and TomTack just a little), beren_me could you please limit the number of photo's in a each single post? (And it's not that I don't like these images, it's just a little to much...)

For instance, this one is great:

Well, yes it's some sort of streamline architecture. The building was designed to have some sort of "aerodinamic" shape to match it's purpose as HQ of the Air ministery.


and I forgot to mention...
Thanks beren_me for all those great pics from Bucharest. I like very much many of those buildings.

Yea,sorry about that,I just didn't know how to split them and open a new page(i'm a newbie here);but now I'm like "duh!should've posted more batches of less photos to pass the 20-post bar per page".Maybe the moderator can break them down and advance us to page no. 6

P.S.:I tried to use low-res pictures

P.P.S.:Love the Air defence ministry bldg.

They are indeed low-res so it isn't a disaster. But somehow it still takes long to download them all...
Anyway, please feel free to post again at page 6: the pictures are great!




That's a detailed building, really great. Especcially the interior is a must see! Are there also guided tours?


Petrolea a.k.a. The Red Elephant
Another example for a design for a city hall, this time for Hilversum (though built for Esso in The Hague)
Architects J.H. de Roos en W.F. Overeynder, 1924.
Sculptures by J. van Lunteren, stained glass by the firm H.J. Winkelman en Van der Bijl.

The tower is 56 meters tall:

I'm wandering whether this architecture belongs to Art-Deco or Expressionism?

Expressionism is usually far less boxy like the Einsteinturm:
The Einstein Tower (German: Einsteinturm) is an astrophysical observatory in the Albert Einstein Science Park
in Potsdam, Germany designed by architect Erich Mendelsohn.
The building was first conceived around 1917, built from 1920 to 1921 after a fund-raising drive, and
became operational in 1924.

Buccarest really caught my attention. Beautiful modern architecture.

Personally I think that pre-war modernism is one of the best styles in architecture ever. It's just not getting old - always looks modern.

Warsaw Train Station (does not exist any more, destroyed in 1944), there aren't many pictures on the internet.

From time of German occupation


Project




Fascinating mix of modernism and art deco.
