9780064388504: Art Deco Architecture in New York, 1920-1940 (Icon Editions)

Dust jacket notes: "Between the two World Wars there was a period of intense building in New York City I what is now known as the Art Deco style. While most people are aware of this style as exemplified by Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building, it is not so widely known that it included all types of structures - office buildings, apartments, stores, hotels, warehouses, banks, schools, hospitals, theaters, even a zoo. Art Deco architecture was ornamental; it was widespread; and here in text an d184 photographs of buildings, details of buildings, exteriors and interiors is the extraordinary dimension of this style, which is a fascinating chapter in new York's constantly changing architectural scene. Don Vlack traces the origins of Art Deco architecture in New York historically from Art Nouveau through Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, and the International Style indicating the influence of Antonio Sant' Elia, Eric Mendelsohn, and Frank Lloyd Wright. With photographs keyed directly to the text, the book shows architectural stylistic devices and the often striking decorative motifs and symbols of the Art Deco style; it covers the different materials used and the different building functions. And, in conclusion, the book tells of the unique integration and relationship between industrial techniques and quality workmanship on a craft level that existed in the architecture of this style and period. 184 illustrations; stylistic and location listings of Deco buildings; bibliography; index."
