Art Deco (from Wikipedia): Art Deco was a movement in decorative arts that also affected architecture. It derived its name from the World's fair held in Paris in 1925, formally titled the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, which showcased French luxury goods and reassured the world that Paris remained the international center of style. Art Deco did not originate with the Exposition; it was a major style in Europe from the early 1920s, though it did not catch on in the U.S. until about 1928, when it quickly modulated into the Moderne during the 1930s, the decade with which the concept of Art Deco is most strongly associated today.

Art deco includes the Chrysler Building in NY, the Argyle Hotel in LA, and the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa.

Please check out this link about beautiful art deco in Long Beach. The new shopping center in West Hills named Fallbrook Center so it will have beautiful art deco too.
Is art Deco the theme in Long Beach? The WalMart looks different, atleast from the outside.
