10 examples of iconic architectural style [Infographic]
Do you consider yourself to be an architecture or design lover? Whether or not you do it, you might still be able to recognize the design work associated with Art Deco. This iconic style is closely linked to the Roaring Twenties and the aesthetics of Gatsby the magnificent. Art Deco architecture and art features clean lines in interesting patterns, including zigzags, chevron patterns, and repeating staggered lines that recede along the page or face of the building. There are also very popular pattern designs like the sunburst, which features radiating lines to create an abstract design of the sun’s rays.
In Art Deco architecture, you will find these dazzling patterns and motifs used on impressive monolithic shapes. You will also see interesting ornamentation and beautiful construction details that continue the play on geometry and color.
