The Chrysler Building is (to me) the best example of art deco design ever!
Just breathtaking.

The Stoclet Palace (French: Palais Stoclet, Dutch: Stocletpaleis) is a private mansion built by architect Josef Hoffmann between 1905 and 1911 in Brussels (Belgium) for banker and art lover Adolphe Stoclet. Considered as Hoffman's masterpiece, the Stoclet's house is one of the most refined and luxurious private houses of the twentieth century

It was constructed on Brussels' Avenue de Tervueren, in the municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, by the Wiener Werkstätte or Viennese Workshop. Although the marble-clad facade is radically simplified and looks forward to Modernism, it contains commissioned works by Gustav Klimt in the dining room, four copper figures at the top by sculptor Franz Metzner, and other craftwork inside and outside the building. This integration of architects, artists, and artisans makes it an example of Gesamtkunstwerk, one of the defining characteristics of Jugendstil.

The mansion is still occupied by the Stoclet family. It is therefore not open to visitors. The palace was designated as a world heritage site by UNESCO in June 2009.

Has anyone seen the Berlin Ritz hotel, on Postdamer Platz? Very very art deco. In fact, the whole square has an art deco feel. It was reconstructed after the war as it was totally flattened and I believe they went for this theme.

Toronto Art Deco

Sadly, this architectural movement didn't catch on in Toronto in the same way it swept over American cities (even Montreal has a more impressive stock). Nonetheless, Toronto does boast a handful of stunning examples of this style:

R.C. Harris Filtration Plant (a.k.a. The Palace of Purification)



Maple Leaf Gardens
image hosted on flickr



Concourse Building



The Royal



CNE Horse Palace
image hosted on flickr



Tip Top Tailor's (loft conversion)



Mansion, originally built for Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris



The Carlu (7th Floor) at Eaton's College St.



Miscellaneous vernacular residential architecture

That's all I can muster for now.

Chrysler Building is the epitome of Art Deco architecture. Empire State may be taller, but Chrysler is more beautiful.
