And what has Art Noveau/Jugendstil to do with Nazis?

Here's one shot of the amazing interior of a court-building in Berlin:

The nazis were of German origin. We started to hate everything German after the war as a result of this. Jugend style was made popular in the Nordics by German architects who worked in the region and German magazines who promoted the style. That's also why we the use the German word Jugend style here rather than the French word Art Nouveau to describe it. Jugend style was therefore consider to be something of German origin which again was hated due to the Nazis.

Thanks for the info, really quite a shame, but perhaps understandable, more so in Norway which had been under occupation, Australia being at war with Germany twice had a lot of German towns and streetnames changed to more anglo-versions, I think similar things happened in America etc..

The biggest tragedy is, the Nazis hated modern art and culture as much as anything else they hated, which I think Jugend style falls under in part. so much of even German culture the nazis despised, which unfortunatly would have been lumped in with them post-war.

They hated modern art and culture, but in modern architecture, they looking for inspiration. Nazi architecture was interesting mix of early modernism and traditionalism, some examples here(in polish):http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1167383&page=1

Amazing! Which building is this? I just returned from a 6-day stay in Berlin and I was a little disappointed by its lack of (surviving) Jugendstil buildings... too bad I missed this one!

It's the "Amtsgericht Mitte" a courthouse near the TV-Tower. It's a huge complex, unfortunately the exterior is simplified since WWII and they deliberately tore down one wing of the building to make a street broader...

Another great example of Jugendstil (this time even inside and out) in Berlin is the Rathaus (townhall) of the Berlin district Charlottenburg:

This is one of the very few examples of art-nouveau that we have in Guadalajara.
