Do you consider yourself a hobby architecture or design lover? Whether you do this or not, you may still be able to see the design work involved art deco. This iconic style is closely tied to the Roaring Twenties and the aesthetic of The Great Gatsby. Both the architecture and art of Art Deco are characterized by clean lines in interesting patterns, including zigzags, chevron patterns, and repetitive staggered lines that run backwards along the side or the side of the building. There are also very popular pattern motifs such as the sunburst, where lines spread out to create an abstract design made up of rays of sunshine.
In Art Deco architecture, you can find these dazzling patterns and motifs on impressive monolithic shapes. You’ll also see interesting ornaments and beautiful building details that continue playing with geometry and color.
