Art Deco

Art Deco is derived from the International Exhibition of Modern Industries and Decorative Arts, held in Paris in 1925 AD. It is a broad style, difficult to describe in a few words, but is generally characterised by geometric and idealised forms. The architecture of Urbicande can be considered to be a very severe form of Art Deco.
