Istanbul doesn't have a great deal of Art Deco, but I did my best to find a few samples.

The National Basilica of Koekelberg is a huge Art Deco church in Brussels, built to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Belgian independence.

In 1905 King Leopold II laid the first stone of the basilica. The construction was halted by the two World Wars and wasn't finished until 1971.

The basilica is dedicated to the Sacred Heart, like the more famous and equally patriotic Basilique Sacré-Coeur in Paris. The more common name "Basilica of Koekelberg" derives from its location in the Koekelberg area of Brussels.

The Art Deco church is 89m high and 167m long, making it the fifth-largest church in the world. The main dome of the bulky brick-faced structure is flanked by two towers. In summer you can climb to the dome for outstanding views of the city.
