Coined in 1966, the term Art Deco refers to the style that was popular during the 1920s until the Second World War period. Features of this style include geometric and angular shapes, bold contrasts and colours, lots of chrome, mirrors and shiny fabrics – which is why Art Deco buildings are so memorable and distinctive even today.
Often the materials used in Art Deco buildings include aluminium and stainless steel, as architects tended to embrace the machine age to add futuristic elements to their designs.
