I repeat, I love art deco.

I just feel that sometimes some buildings built in this style don't age well.

Moorish-Deco in Chicago

The Hotel Intercontinental

image hosted on flickr

On a clear day by Mercer52, on Flickr

The Chicago InterContinental Hotel began life in 1929 as the Medinah Athletic Club and became a public hotel in 1944. In the building’s days as an athletic club, the tower beneath the great dome (which originated as part of a docking port for dirigibles) housed a miniature golf course on the twenty-third floor, complete with water hazards and a wandering brook; also a shooting range, billiards hall, running track, gymnasium, archery range, bowling alley, two-story boxing arena, and a junior Olympic size swimming pool - all this in addition to the ballrooms, meeting rooms, and 440 guest rooms which were available for the exclusive use of the club’s 3,500 members and their guests. At the time, the pool was one of the highest indoor pools in the world, and its fourteenth floor location was heralded as a grand feat of engineering. Today it is commonly referred to as the Johnny Weismuller pool, after the famous Olympic athlete and actor who trained in it. The rows of seats which remain on its western wall recall the days when swimming was a popular spectator sport. Its blue Spanish majolica tiles and terra-cotta fountain of Neptune on its east wall remain virtually unchanged today.

Momumento a la Libertad / Freedom Monument (1929)
Trujillo - Peru

The Freedom Monument, located in the center of the Plaza de Armas of Trujillo (Peru) and work of sculptor Edmund Möeller, consists of three sections: the first is on a circular platform with pedestals, resting on a granite base, supporting the sculptures represent the art, science, trade and health. The second consists of three statues robust. A statue of a man who snorts, it is bent, symbolizing oppression or slavery. A second statue's arms back, symbolizing the struggle for freedom. The third statue is a man with arms raised and hands making fist, symbolizing liberation. Also in this body are located the next plates: the first recalling the proclamation of the independence of Trujillo, José Bernardo de Torre Tagle, the December 29, 1820. The second plaque commemorates the Battle of Junín, and the third plaque commemorates the Battle of Ayacucho. (Source: Wikipedia)

a building that incorporates traditional chinese elements with art deco

the old shanghai library is now in a state of disrepair, this is a real shame because i think it showcases one of the best examples of fusion between art deco and traditional chinese styles

Gaumont State Cinema, London

Designed by George Coles and opened in 1937. At one time the biggest in Europe with a capacity of 4004 seats. This was also the venue for a great concert by The Who in 1977, which is featured on The Who at Kilburn.


Wikipedia

The third class entrance at the back.


Grand art deco entrances built into more bland buildings seems to have been a trait of Coles.
