Villa Emain, Brussels, Belgium. (source: www.ilovebelgium.be)

The, just renovated, Villa Empain is certainly one of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces of Art Deco in Brussels. In 1930, at the age of 21, Baron Louis Empain had this private mansion of 2500 square meters built, on the prestigious Franklin Roosevelt Avenue. It is to the Swiss architect Michel Polak, that this splendid mansion is entrusted to. Michel Polak is already well known in Belgium: one of his major works consisted of the famous “Residence Palace” (1928) and the institute George Eastman in the Leopold Parc (the future Museum of Europe).

The project conceived on a property of 55 acres includes a monumental villa with four granite polished facades, a garden surrounding a decorated swimming pool of pergola and a caretaker’s lodge. The modern and luxurious character of this construction generated enthusiasm and curiosity. It is true that the diversity and the quality of the materials used (marble, polished granite, bronzes, wrought iron, glasses and precious woods), the refinement of the details and the coherence of the whole imposing simple lines has contributed from the start to its patrimonial value.

Great Art lover, Louis Empain donated the property to the Belgian State in 1937, with the intention of creating a museum of decorative and contemporary art. Unfortunately this project was not carried out till after few years under the direction of La Cambre School of Arts. In 1943, the German army requisitioned the villa and occupied it until the end of the war. Thereafter it sheltered the allied armies and as well as the embassy of the USSR and did not fulfill the functions for which it was offered to the Belgian State. Considering that the latter had not honored its engagement, Louis Empain recovered his property in the beginning of the sixties before reselling it in 1973.

Since the beginning of the years 1990, the building remained practically unoccupied and left in a state of minimal maintenance. Fortunately, its recent acquisition by the Boghossian Foundation makes it possible to consider its future in an optimistic way. Its approved classification by the Government of Brussels-Capital Region in March 2007 and its future assignment into a center of dialogue between the cultures of the East and the West guarantees indeed the revival of this splendid house.

English Art Deco

Its a beautiful style, one of my favourites, here are some examples from around England.

Many of the Burtons stores in England have a similar Art Deco design, many featuring elephants and zig zag patterns, one/if not the best example is in my home town of Wolverhampton.

This Burtons store in London is an Art Deco/classical mix of styles and is another good example of the Burtons design.

This London Art Deco has a strong Egyptian influence.

London's Victoria Coach Station features set-backs and corner windows.

Even the BBC likes Art Deco this is their headquarters in London.

Many cinemas in England were built in the Art Deco style. The Odeon Cinema chain had Art Deco cinemas in most large cities across the country.

The largest was in Blackpool, which is now a nightclub and home to some funny girls.

Blackpool also has a great example of the Woolworths chain, another set of shops all built with an Art Deco design.

Stazione Cantrale - Milan

Sui tabelloni rotanti meglio tacere , ma comunque in tutto il modo è cosi’..le stazioni sono piene di pubblicita’ anche in modi molto peggiori.




IMHO alla Centrale c’è una delle piu’ strepitose collezioni di appliques Deco che si possano trovare.




Per quante volte li abbia visti nella mia vita, rimango sempre ammirato dallo splendore degli scaloni laterali: non sarebbero fuori posto in un palazzo imperiale assiro-babilonese.
Perfetto il restauro, e belle le cose nuove: le ringhiere vetrate trasparenti, e soprattutto lo strepitoso rivestimento di marmo bicolore nel nuovo corridoio al piano terra.
