Hola otra vez, si alguno de vosotros va a Nueva York este verano o en cualquier otra época del año, quiero hablaros sobre arquitectura Art Deco. Nueva York tiene cantidad de edificios Art Deco y ¡son realmente bonitos!
ART DECO is a modern style that started in 1925, at a Paris exhibition but that soon crossed the Atlantic to the United States which was enjoying an economic boom in 1920.
Unfortunately, in 1929 there was the Wall Street Crash but, it didn't mean the Art Deco end.
**ART DECO HIGHLIGHTS (características)
This kind of architecture is spectacular, great, innovative, brave, courageous, using materials like brick (ladrillo) , bronze, steel and glass with a lot of floral and modern paintings on the façades.
The main American Art Deco architecture projects were: bridges, highways, public housing (viviendas de protección oficial), schools, hospitals, offices, and buildings in general. etc.
In New York city you can find some examples of this kind of architecture and in The Big Apple there are many Art Deco buildings but there are many more all around USA.
Some of the most famous Art Deco New York buildings are:
**THE CHRYSLER BUILDING
**THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING
The Empire State building opened in 1931 but many of its offices were empty until the Second World War.
Spectacular views from the top at night! It was the first skyscraper in the city. Beautiful!
**THE ROCKEFELLER CENTRE
These buildings include Radio City Music Hall whose interior was designed by Donald Deskey (one of the great industrial designers in America) and the ice skating rink in midtown Manhattan.
**GRAND CENTRAL STATION.
This famous station has a beautiful Art Deco mural.
This is one of Manhattan's most exclusive streets. Sculpted murals can be found on some of its buildings.
**42, EAST 39TH STREET.
This is one of many New York office buildings with decorative façades in this style.
