The Shape and Texture of Buildings
If you are into art, you may notice something rather interesting about many of the buildings in NYC. Buildings like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building were done by means of Art Deco. Art Deco was a very popular international art design back in 1925 until the 1940s. This type of design affected the architecture, interior design, and shape of many buildings that were constructured between 1925 and the 1940's.
The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor.
Art Deco was chosen for its elegance, glamor, functionality, and modernism. Artists looked at it as a combination of Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. For a while Art Deco lost touch with people until the 1980s.
