Art Deco

1920's to 1930's

 

 

Art Deco is an elegant style of decorative art, furniture design and architecture which began as a Modernist reaction against the Art Nouveau style. It is characterized by the use of crisp, symmetrical geometric forms. One of the classic Art Deco images is that of 1930s-era skyscrapers such as New York's Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. The latter, designed by architect William Van Alen, is considered to be one of the world's great Art Deco buildings.

 

The Art Deco style is reminiscent of the Precisionist art movement, which developed at about the same time.

 

Well-known artists within the Art Deco movement included Tamara de Lempicka, glass artist Rene Lalique, fashion illustrator Erte and graphic designer Adolphe Mouron, known as Cassandre.

id think it'd be steel on the outside, if there is glass, its coverable... We wouldnt spend 420 mil on glass.. dont worry, if this thing gets done, we all love it

A glass roof could actually be more hurricane proof than a normal roof...if that is where they intend to use large amounts of glass. It would make the roof heavier and less likely to be damaged.

Yeah, and allow everyone to get "burned" to a nice golden brown crisp. That's just what we need, have out baseball team play in a GIANT GREENHOUSE!!!!

 

Remember the glass panels in the Astrodome. Yup, all the grass that was attempted to be grown in there dried up to a crisp, hence the birth of Astro-turf.

Nowhere did it say that the ROOF would be glass. Whatever they build Im sure it would be state of the art, safe, comfortable, and a work of art.

 

Loria is a cool cat :thumbup
