Next polish city: Bytom (germ. Beuthen in Oberschlesie)

Bytom jugendstil architecture is characterized by colorful facades, often lined with ceramics. Represents the geometric trend, benefiting from a composition of lines and geometric figures. What’s also remarkable and considered as local art nouveau style is fact that facades where generally made of bricks. That’s also because brick facade was more resistant to Bytom’s smoky industrial environment and it could easily cleaned.

It is hard to find art nouveau pictures of London on the internet. I think Glasgow is UK's center of this style. However I found some pics, that I'm delighted to present

the Cogels-Osylei (street) in Antwerp, Belgium is fully created in the period 1881–1914, so the styles vary from jugendstil, art nouveau, eclectic style and neoclassicism:

Those London buildings weren't really art nouveau/Jugendstil Buildings.

I love the Belgian Art Noveau the best. So organic and dynamic!

I don't fully agree. The fact they doesn't look like Brussels building doeasn't mean they aren't art nouveau.

Of course they don't have to have the organic look of Belgian examples! Just look at Jugendstil in Germany or Austria.
But in those London pictures only the Whitechapel Art Gallery can be considered as an Art Nouveau building. But it's not a distinctive example either...
The others are built in Neorenaissance, Neobaroque and in the Beaux Artes style.

If one of the definitive characteristics of Art Nouveau style is childishness (intentional), then the Church of the Miraculous Image of Our Saviour in Abramtsevo predates the first Western expression of Art Nouveau by one year.

Concept - Viktor Vasnetsov, architect - Pavel Samarin.

The drum features ceramic panels with childish motifs:

Nice ones from Istanbul! Though they need to get rid off those signs on the façades and some of the buildings sure need renovation.

Je suis très impressionné par tous ces bâtiments Jugendstil ou Art Nouveau que l'on trouve en Europe de l'Est, ce que j'ignorais totalement.

En revanche je suis moins convaincu par l'Art Nouveau anglais qui me rappelle plutôt cette espèce de style dérivé du style victorien et revisité par les canons des châteaux de la campagne britannique, magnifique au demeurant.

Et jusqu'à ces immeubles grecs dont l'on se demande par quel artiste ils ont été dessinés, et les quelques mots de français disséminés ça et là laissent planer quelques hypothèses. Décidément c'est bien cela l'Europe : un essaimage, un pissenlit qui a projeté ses filaments sur le nez de l'Asie qui pointe vers l'Amérique, dans quelques détails au coin d'un immeuble ou en haut d'une façade. Et le raisonnement vaut pour tous les arts d'ailleurs. Vous allez me trouvez chauvin et vous me traiterez de vilain français, avec raison ; mais, ah ! que l'Europe devait être belle et séduisante lorsqu'elle parlait français !

Maison Saint-Cyr, 1901-1903, Brussels, architect Gustave Strauven (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustave_Strauven)

It is four metres long and it has a good deal of wrought iron in the façade, which is adorned with geometric motifs and each balcony has a balustrade. The wrought iron mimics vegetation and the decorative elements occupy all the space available. Due to its extravagance, the building has been called Art Nouveau baroque. It is in a poor state of repair, and negotiations are taking place to secure the funding needed for its renovation.







And this one, in an other part of Brussels must have been influenced by Maison Saint-Cyr, architect Nelissen:

What is typical for the Belgian (especially Brussels) Art Nouveau or AN inspired building is the Sgraffito. A sgraffito is basically a colour drawing into cement, we see that today more and more Sgraffito drawing are renovated, as they did not handle time really well.

Here are some examples:
