Before I make this post I apologize for the small pictures - I couldn't find much better ones.

So, here's my hometown Stalowa Wola - a city created post-WW2. It was probably the only one which was planned entirely with a certain architecture style (well, up until commie blocks introduced themselves).
All of the buildings that were created in the first years of the city were done in art deco and as far as I recall, they all are still standing.

Here is a sort of luxurious house.



The very first housing for workers of the steel mill (which was the reason for the city to exist)

Some more "flats"

It's still a bit on the slow side, but some of them are receiving some brand new makeup. Most of the time they stay classy.



Here's a hotel, named Hutnik. It has just undergone a major overhaul in its interiors and will soon be renovated on the outside as well.



Saving the best for the end The "headquarters" of the Steel Mill "Huta Stalowa Wola". Probably the most beautiful thing in the city.





And an interior shot:



I hope the rest of the world will like it
I don't want to post too many pictures, as the architecture of these structures don't differ much from building to building and almost everything is either pearl, white or beige in colour.

Phnom Penh Central Market

I know this was already posted, but here are some more pictures of the Phnom Penh Central Market, it's a beautiful example of Art Deco architecture.
