art deco series
art moderne, international style
The Art Deco Movement is a popularstylistic moniker that is often appliedto the period of time between the1920s and the beginning of WorldWar II — encompassing both ArtModerne and International Stylearchitecture. The name ‘Art Deco’ wasderived from the 1925 “ExpositionInternationale des Arts Décoratifs” aworld fair and grand spectacle of allthat was new and most fashionable tothe world of design. It was a stylisticevolution from the simplicity of theArts and Crafts Movement to themore elaborate Art Nouveau period,adding more integrated and decorativeelements to all aspects of architecturaldesign. There was no distinct guidingprincipal to Art Deco, but ratherstylistic elements that were connectedby common themes — the decorative,the commercial, the fashionable andthe symbolic.Art Deco style is tremendously diverseand was inspired by modern thinkingfrom around the globe. Some arch-itectural and interior designs featuredexotic and organic motifs fromIndonesia and Asia, while others drewupon more decorative conventionswith stylized European and Slavicprincipals. Some design elementswere extremely ornate, while othersremained more sophisticated andsubdued. These contrasting idealsare found at varying degrees in bothArt Moderne and International Stylearchitecture.The American Art Moderne movementwas a relatively short architecturalperiod from the 1920s to the 1940s.This architecture shows some Art Decoinfluences of geometric surfaceapplications, but was predominantlyinspired by America’s affinity fortraveling and traveling machines;the airplane, the ocean liner, the car,the train. Art Moderne architecturefeatured several streamlined designelements; smooth surfaces, flat roof lines and decorative, horizontalgrooves. Other architectural featuresinclude round windows, glass blockand curved corners.The International Style pushed theconventions of the Art Modernemovement to more avant-garde heights.A skeleton, or structural frameworkgave way to an asymmetrical skinor façade. Steel, stucco and glassare hallmarks of International Stylearchitecture. Functionality of spacewas considered more importantthan decorative design. As a result,technology replaced ornamentation.The French architect Le Corbusier isconsidered the father of InternationalStyle architecture and authoredthe idea of the modern house as a“machine for living.”
