For me it's the 1920's and 30's. The era when skyscrapers were starting to get tall and intetesting, art deco was a predominating style and craftsmanship was still the norm.

1950-1960. When they had already gotten rid of the all excessive ornamentation and had embarked in a true period of experimentation, new frontiers and materials, detachment of styles and regions buildings were built etc. Yet, that was still before the build'em cheap of the mid-1960s caught on producing commieblocks...

The 1890s/1900s without any doubt for me. Gründerzeit and Jugendstil baby! :banana2:

Fin de siecle / turn of the century, the point where Victoriana reached its apogee of intricacy and retrospection, but modernism startled the world
with its realism, space and linear work influenced by Japonisme- in part due to a Victorian obsession with all styles, historical and abroad even if it
ultimately countered it's own fundamentals. It was the period when the avant garde was in the air, globally, echoing with social justice, freedom and
a brief period of sexual liberation.

Folklore meets realism = the romance of the age.

I really like 1880s-1930s

Any decade in that section! Victorian grandeur, Edwardian neo classical and Art Deco
