The tech industry seems to embrace Art Deco:

Well, for Twitter; that's the recycled SF Design center which was vacant for years. They got a sweetheart deal of a lease on that one.

Didn't know that Yahoo is only taking SOME floors in the Chronicle bldg.

And those 2 aren't really the greatest "Art Deco" bldgs in SF, if at all.

No one's claiming they're the best in SF, but they're indisputably Art Deco.

Moving along, the BBC recently consolidated many of their operations back at the expanded Broadcasting House in London:



The post-modern addition doesn't quite measure up to the original building:

Old Bank of China building, Hong Kong:



Old HSBC building, Hong Kong (demolished):


Put them together, flatten it, and you might get 50 Connaught Road, Hong Kong:

Here's one of the greatest Art Deco structures in the world:

The Niagara Mohawk Building, Syracuse, NY















An amazing synthesis of art, technology, and industry. A building like this reminds you that even though Art Deco is a style from the past, it still represents the future.

Easily one of the top 5 Art Deco structures in the world.

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA







And here's the little Art Deco cafe by the bridge:


It's interesting how Art Deco structures define America's two most beloved cities of the coasts: the Empire State Building/Chrysler Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Towers of silver and gold. They almost have a mythical quality.

The Rhode Island DOT went a little Art Deco with the design of the recently completed Pawtucket River Bridge.

In honor of the Academy Awards tonight:

Sunset Tower Hotel, West Hollywood, CA







Art Deco still represents the glamor and power of Hollywood.

Edit: Here it is dressed up for the perennial Vanity Fair afterparty:

Art-Deco looks great in sunny places and surrounded with palm trees.

$60M Conversion of Art Deco Gem 140 New Montgomery
Wednesday, March 12, 2014, by Tracy Elsen

The Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Building at 140 New Montgomery was one of San Francisco's first high-rises and was the tallest building in the city at 26 stories upon its completion in 1925. Purchased by developer Wilson Meany in 2007, the building has now been updated and converted into a modern office tower with 280,000 square feet. Tech tenants such as Yelp and Lumosity are set to move into the space, which keeps much of its stunning Art Deco character, especially in the striking lobby . . . .
