Breeze, Carla.

Book ID: 50034

Art deco architecture flourished in large cities and small towns throughout America in the 1920s and 1930s. Many of the best examples„office buildings, movie theaters, hotels, and churches„are still in use. Deco architects, artists, and designers drew on European styles but were most committed to a style that grew organically, as they saw it, from their native soil. This lavishly illustrated survey of American Art Deco architecture features descriptions„and over 450 color photographs„of seventy-five innovatively designed buildings across the country that have been preserved both outside and in, giving the full scope of this beloved, exciting style.
