For lovers of Art Deco, a major exhibition on the style has opened at the Cité de l’architecture & du patrimoine in Paris:





Quote:
1925, when Art Déco dazzled the World
Wednesday 16 October 2013 - Monday 17 February 2014


With its sleek, powerful geometric lines, Art Déco style (1919-1940) stands out thanks to its lively appeal. Born of the impetus driving French artists such as architects Henri Sauvage, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Roger-Henri Expert and Pierre Patout, designers André Véra, Louis Süe, André Mare and Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann, fashion designers Paul Poiret and Jean Patou and sculptors Martel, Janniot and Sarrabezolles, it is the product of a vision shared by various artistic spheres.

The exhibition has been set up as a suite of sequences on themes striving to illustrate what lies behind Art Déco’s international success and its influence in various forms of artistic expression.

It starts with a comparative study of differences and points in common with Art Nouveau using plans, mock-ups and photographs of Henri Sauvage’s Villa Majorelle in Nancy and Robert Mallet-Stevens’ Villa Cavrois. The exhibition then presents major French designers whose 1910–1919 output already bore distinctive Art Déco features: architects
Henri Sauvage and Auguste Perret, designer André Véra, fashion designer Paul Poiret and interior designer Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann.

Next comes a large sequence devoted to the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs and Industriels Modernes, the name of which led to the coining of the term «Art Déco».

The last major section focusses on the global resonance of this aesthetic movement. Further to the huge success of the 1925 Paris exhibition, French architects, artists and designers were invited to demonstrate their talents in major cities all over the world.

NJ - Jersey City: Jersey City Medical Center/Beacon

The Beacon, located on a 14-acre site on Bergen Hill, is a mixed use development project in the former Jersey City Medical Center complex. The center began as the "Charity Hospital" by the Board of Aldermen of Jersey City who bought land at Baldwin Avenue and Montgomery Street in 1882 for a new hospital, and renamed the Jersey City Hospital in 1885. The original building was reserved to men, and a second wing for women was added in 1909. From 1917 to 1931, the original building was renovated and a new 23-story structure for surgery, known as The Orpheum, was added. During the Great Depression, new buildings were added as a Works Progress Administration project. Together, the complex is the largest concentration of Art Deco buildings in New Jersey.

The development company, Metrovest, has overseen an adaptive reuse project that started in 2008 when the first two buildings, The Rialto and Capital, opened with 315 condominium residences, joined by a two-story lobby and a 45,000-square-foot amenity core which features an indoor pool, spa, screening room, and a children's playroom. Plans ultimately call for eight additional buildings in total to be converted to residential and retail use.

Unfortunately, last I heard the redevelopment was stopped by the recession.

ART DECO The buildings are beautiful, but feel that in many cases people do not even understand its beauty.
