American Art Deco Architecture is an explanation of European Architecture. Here we will review the architecture in more detail about the American Art Deco
Modern American architecture is generally divided into two styles: Art Deco and Modern Streamline.
Art Deco Architecture
Art Deco, created in the 1920s and flourishing in the 1930s-1940s, is a versatile style that combines traditional craft motifs with images and materials from the machine age.
Modern Streamline, also known as Modern Art, was a late-style type of Art Deco style appeared in the thirties. Its architectural style highlights curved shapes, long horizontal lines and sometimes nautical elements.
The Art Deco style is often characterized by rich colors, symmetry, bold geometric shapes, simple composition, straight forms instead of curves and lush decorations. In the inter-war period, when rapid industrialization transformed culture, one of the main characteristics of Art Deco was its technological orientation.
At its peak, Art Deco embodied luxury, glamor, opulence and confidence in social and technological progress. American cities have many examples of Art Deco architecture, including New York, Chicago and Detroit. The famous skyscrapers of these cities are the best known, but remarkable Art Deco buildings can be found in other parts of the city.

The terracotta sunburst pattern is a perfect example of the Art Deco combination of craft motifs, ornaments and geometric patterns.
The tower is composed of seven radiant terrace arches mounted one behind the other. The paneling is ribbed and riveted in a bright sun pattern with many triangular arched windows.
Spire of the Chrysler Building New York
The sumptuous Art Deco tower of Chrysler New York City, designed by William Van Alen, was built between 1928 and 1930 and reflects the sumptuous ornamentation of the past, but a simple and unadorned composition of style.
As the decade of the Great Depression progressed in the 1930s, Americans saw the market as a new decorative element of the Art Deco style: rationalization. Streamline Modern is a concept initially developed by industrial designers who favored the aerodynamic concept of movement and speed, developed from scientific thought.
This aesthetic materialized through the use of cylindrical shapes and a long horizontal window shape. A number of designers have rapidly modernized and streamlined the design of everyday objects such as toasters.
Modern Streamline was both a reaction to Art Deco and a reflection of the economic crisis. Way was a useless ornament. The sharp angles have been replaced by simple aerodynamic curves. Exotic woods and stones were replaced by cement and glass.
Typical features of Streamline Modern are horizontal orientation, rounded edges, corner windows, glass blocks, portholes, chrome fittings, smooth exterior wall surfaces (usually stucco), horizontal grooves, and the attenuated colors.

The Hecht Company Warehouse (Washington, DC) is a modern Streamline style building. The building uses a lot of glass blocks and ends with a dome shaped like a twelve-pointed star in the corner, lit up at night. The black brick with glass bricks embodies The Hecht Co. on the fifth floor.
Art Deco and rationalizing modernism, however, were not necessarily opposed. Streamlining Modern buildings with few decorative elements were not uncommon and sometimes there are so many crossovers that it can be difficult to distinguish between the two styles.

Modern European architecture is a continuation of the European Architecture article. here we will review modern architecture in Europe.
Expressionist architecture is an architectural movement that developed in Europe during the first decades of the twentieth century alongside expressionist visual and performing arts. The term Expressionist architecture describes for the first time the activities of the German, Dutch, Austrian, Czech and Danish avant-gardes from 1910 to 1930.
Subsequent redefinitions extended the term until 1905 and extended it to the rest of Europe. Today, the meaning has expanded to refer to the architecture of a date or place with some of the qualities of the original movement, such as distortion, fragmentation, or the communication of violent or overexploited emotions. .
The style was characterized by the early adoption of new materials, formal innovations and very unusual masses, sometimes inspired by natural biomorphic forms and sometimes the new technological possibilities offered by the mass production of bricks, steel and glass. .
Many expressionist architects fought in the First World War and their experiences, combined with the political upheavals and social upheavals that followed the German Revolution of 1919, led to a utopian attitude and a romantic socialist agenda. As a result, the ephemeral exhibition buildings were numerous and of great importance during this period.
Theater and film scenography also stimulated Expressionist imagery and provided additional income for designers attempting to challenge conventions in a difficult economic environment.
Characteristics of expressionist architecture
Expressionist architecture was individualistic and in many ways avoided aesthetic dogma. Although the movement has been very broad, certain points can be found in works of Expressionist architecture and are found to a certain extent in each of their works.
# A deformation of form for an emotional effect.
# The subordination of realism to a symbolic or stylistic expression of the inner experience.
# A fundamental effort to reach the new, original and visionary.
# A profusion of works on paper and models where the discovery and presentation of concepts are more important than the pragmatic finished products.
# Often, hybrid solutions that can not be reduced to a single concept.
# Natural and romantic phenomena such as caves, mountains, lightning, crystals and rock formations.
# Use the creative potential of crafting.
# An inclination for Gothic as for the classic.
# Refers to Moorish, Islamic, Egyptian and Indian art and architecture, as well as Romanesque and Greek art.
# Understands architecture as a work of art
The form also played a crucial role in the demarcation of the expressionist architecture of its immediate predecessor, Art Nouveau or Art Nouveau. While Art Nouveau with its ornaments had an organic freedom, Expressionist architecture sought to release the shape of the whole building instead of just its parts.
Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower is an example of an expressionist project built and formally resourceful. This sculpted building shows a relativistic and changing vision of geometry: without applied ornamentation, form and space are formed in a fluid concrete that expresses the concepts of the architect and the eponymous building.

The Einstein Tower
In Mendelsohn’s design, the form and space are made of flowing concrete and have no ornamentation.
Expressionist architecture uses curved geometries and a repetitive form in the movement is the dome. Another expressionist motif was the emphasis on horizontality or verticality for dramatic effects influenced by new technologies such as cruise liners and skyscrapers.
