Stunning photographs offer a visual journey through London's Art Deco style--from factories and underground stations to theaters and private residences This richly illustrated book offers a fascinating and detailed look at the Art Deco style, from building design to decorative detail. The Art Deco style gained prominence at the 1925 Paris Exposition, after which each nation seemed to adapt its own distinct architectural style. Less florid than the French or that of the United States, Great Britain's buildings reflected the country's imperial status. From the imposing style of the Savoy Hotel, through the ornate detail of the West End theaters, to Art Deco factories like the Hoover Building, they also demonstrated Britain's love of detail. Remarkably, many of London's Art Deco buildings still survive--their once grime-covered indigenous Portland stone now mostly scrubbed clean, beautifully displaying their many sculptural details.Reseña del editor:
For this survey of London's rich trove of Art Deco treasures, the author has photographed not just landmark buildings like the Savoy Hotel and the Hoover factory but also department stores, cinemas and theatres, Underground stations and many other buildings in which stunning exteriors or interiors survive.
