Much more tasteful than the Newyork building that inspired it IMHO.
It was inspired by buildings in Chicago.

Riga, Latvia - our architects were at the forefront of Functionalism in 1920ies, somehow Art Deco did not "rule" here. Unfortunately. But we got a bit of something.

Brethren's Cemetery from late 1920ies - enormous complex. Architecture is more from Functionalism but sculptures - Art Deco.


Interior of rural house built in 1930ies, now in our Open Air Museum


Office building - rather Functionalism, but with Art Deco influence


This factory (VEF) is built... in 1909. At that year Art Deco or Functionalism did not exist yet. So - what style is it?


Small bridge in countryside, built in 1920ies. May be Functionalism, may be Art Deco...


"Laima" chocolate advertisement - clock and Monument of Freedom behind it - both are brilliant examples of Art Deco.


Oh well, not much, I know

Since Riga has always been under rather strong German influence, perhaps we could say it's part of the Reformstil.

It's one of the earliest styles doing mostly without ornamentation.

Another example would be the entrance building of the old Elbe tunnel in Hamburg, Germany (1911):

Well, did not know this style! But - this factory is designed by German architect Peter Behrens - thus it might be Reformstil!

Art Deco is the best kind of architecture ever. One of my friends live there and he said to me about its construction ...really nice architecture. Keep it up.

They are different styles.
Art Nouveau is late C.19th-early C.20th (pre-WWI).
Art Deco is 1920s-30s (post-WWI or Interwar).

Art Nouveau in Italy is known as Arte Floriale. In Germany it's known as Jugenstil. Some places - Austria? - it's known as Secessionist. (My spelling may be a bit incorrect.)

In lettering or calligraphy, a font style in Word, etc., that is similar to Art Nouveau is 'Vivaldi' while 'Broadway' is Art Deco.

Sì, è vero, I forgot that. Also I now remember it's 'arte floreale' or 'stile floreale' as well as 'stilo Liberty'.
Credo que the 'Liberty' comes from the American design firm, "Liberty", which was famous at that time and is famous for its floral designs very influenced by European Art Nouveau in interior design, fabrics, furniture and household items.

FYI Rocky:

American slang: It is way SO different! (not 'to').

It is teenager speak but not good English.

###

Neungz: Central Post Office, Bangkok, - that is an interesting example of regional variation of the style.
