Time for some life in this thread!

First off, another fine piece from Rotterdam:

(Image from Dutch Wikipedia)
Designed by Dutch architect Buskens, who built many Jugendstil-inspired buildings in Rotterdam and beyond, most of whom didn't survive the German bombardments in 1940. Some that did were demolished in the 1960s :-(

The second is the Hotel Americain in Amsterdam, still standing proudly:

Designed by the architect W. Kromhout from Rotterdam, who - strangely - detested Art Nouveau, it was built in 1902, supposedly in "Arabic Renaissance" style as Kromhout himself put it.

Some other, less well-known gems from Amsterdam (a city that is not well known for its Art Nouveau):

Genova (Genoa) - Italy
In Italy the Art Nouveau is called "Liberty"

I moved this thread to the general Classic Architecture forum, so buildings from all around the globe can be featured here.


Nice piece of Art Nouveau in Porto Alegre, Brasil: Observatório Astronômico, a space observatory.
