Montevideo, URUGUAY

Montevideo is the Capital city from Uruguay. The special thing about our Art Deco buildings, is that we don't have huge Skyscrapers or towers, but thousands of homes built in this style. That's what makes our city a really valuable example of a Art Deco city

This one is Monetvideo Yatch Club... it really looks like a ship

This tower is attached to our biggest football Stadium in Town: "Estadio Centenario", where the first World Football Cup was held in 1930 (yeah, Uruguay won it )

That Belgian religious building is well known as the biggest in the world, in art deco terms.

Wow, I am stunned by those photos.
Is there any book considering those buildings, meaning any about Belgian Art Deco?
