San Pellegrino Terme, Italia.

I realize that the last pages have been a little bit Italy-centric. At least from me. However the country is filled with so many beautiful and have hardly been presented here in the tread at all prior to my post. I will see if I can find some buildings from other countries too soon in order to break up a little bit. But for now:

But, if this picture is anything to go by, then it seems like it might be renovated and taken into use in the future:

The building used to be topped by a large, illuminated crystal globe. The globe was later removed. Sadly.

Great pics Galro. Thanks for sharing
I didn't know China had Art Nouveau buildings.

I've been in Budapest and I have a nice collection of Sezession style buildings (which is the same as Art Nouveu or Jugendstil)

My pics. Hotel Gellert is in the list of 1000 Places to see before you die
Graphic scanned from a DK Travel Book



















Hotel Gellért is a famous, first class four star hotel in Budapest, Hungary. The hotel was erected on the right bank of the river Danube between 1916 and 1918 in the (Secession) Art Nouveau style with some biomorphic elements, at the foot of Gellért Hill, next to Szabadság Bridge.
Hotel Gellért is famous for its thermal baths, see: Gellért Baths.


Trivia

The hotel also makes an appearance in the computer video game series Hitman under a changed name Hotel Gallŕrd (although it is more often referred to as the "Thermal Bath Hotel").


Gellért Baths

Gellért Thermal Baths and Swimming Pool, also called Gellért fürdő or Gellért Baths, is one of the most beautiful and elegant baths in Budapest, built between 1912 and 1918 in the (Secession) Art Nouveau style. They were damaged during World War II, but then rebuilt. References to healing waters in this location are found from as early as the 13th century. A hospital was located on this site during the Middle Ages. During the reign of the Ottoman Empire, baths were also built on this particular site.

The Gellért Baths complex includes thermal baths, which are small pools containing water from Gellért hill's mineral hot springs. The water contains calcium, magnesium, hydrocarbonate, alkalis, chloride, sulfate, and fluoride. There are two different thermal baths, according to the signs on the walls of the baths, one is around 36°C and the other around 38°C. The thermal baths are decorated beautifully with mosaic tiles. The complex also includes saunas and plunge pools (segregated by gender), an open-air swimming pool which can create artificial waves every ten minutes and an effervescent swimming pool. Masseuse services are available. Different types of massage are available. In a half hour massage, patrons and are escorted into a room with 3 massage beds and are asked to remove all their clothing. The massages given are completely nude, with 3 massages going on in the same room at once. Gellért Baths also offer a wide range of medical services, but they must be booked ahead of time.

You're welcome!

Harbin, which is the Chinese city I posted pictures from, is a special case. It was founded by Russia I believe and was in their spheres of influence. It thus got an unusual amount of Russian and western European-style architecture. I don't know if there are any Art Nouveau buildings elsewhere in China though.

The Secession interiors created here are among the most splendid to be found in Budapest.

The interiors of the hotel, like the baths, have kept their original Secession decor,
with elaborate mosaics, stained-glass windows and statues.

Main Staircase




The landings of the main staircase have stained-glass windows by Bózó Stanisits, added in 1933.
They illustrate an ancient Hungarian legend about a magic stag, recorded in the poetry of János Arany

Palazzo Castiglioni - Milano, Italia

Palazzo Castiglioni - Milan, Italy

From wikipedia:

Quote:
Palazzo Castiglioni is an Art Nouveau palace of Milan, northern Italy. It was designed by Giuseppe Sommaruga and built between 1901 and 1903. The rusticated blocks of the basement imitate a natural rocky shape, while the rest of the decorations are inspired by 18th century stuccos. The building is now used as the seat of the Unione Commercianti di Milano (Traders' Union of Milan).

The palace was built for entrepreneur Ermengildo Castiglioni, who chose architect Giuseppe Sommaruga because of his anticonventional solutions. Castiglioni wanted the palace to reflect his wealth and grandeur; the choice of the Art Nouveau, a new and "trendy" style, for a building that would be located in the historic centre of Milan, was intended by Castiglioni and Sommaruga as a sort of challenge to the Milanese conservative élite. The most provocative element of the original design turned out to be a couple of nude female statues, by Ernesto Bazzaro, decorating the facade; these raised such turmoil that the local newspaper Guerin Meschino published a series of satyrical illustrations on them, and the Milanese population renamed the palace "Cŕ di ciapp" (in Milanese, "house of buttocks"). The statues, that were intended to represented "Peace" and "Industry", were eventually removed and are now used as decorations of another Milanese palace also by Sommaruga, Villa Faccanoni.

That looks Victorian rather than Art-Nouveau, but I might be wrong.
