An expansive take on American Art Deco that explores Chicago's pivotal role in developing the architecture, graphic design, and product design that came to define middle-class style in the twentieth century Frank Lloyd Wright’s lost Midway Gardens, the iconic Sunbeam Mixmaster, and Marshall Field’s famed window displays: despite the differences in scale and medium, each belongs to the broad current of an Art Deco style that developed in Chicago in the first half of the twentieth century. This ambitious overview of the city’s architectural, product, industrial, and graphic design between 1910 and 1950 offers a fresh perspective on a style that would come to represent the dominant mode of modernism for the American middle class. Lavishly illustrated with 325 images, the book narrates Art Deco’s evolution in 101 key works, carefully curated and chronologically organized to tell the story of not just a style but a set of sensibilities. Critical essays from leading figures in the field discuss the ways in which Art Deco created an entire visual universe that extended to architecture, advertising, household objects, clothing, and even food design. Through this comprehensive approach to one of the 20th century’s most pervasive modes of expression in America, Art Deco Chicago provides an essential overview of both this influential style and the metropolis that came to embody it.

Born in Mumbai, earlier known as Bombay, and studying in Chicago since 2018 made me connect to both the cities because of their close resemblance to art and architectural cultures. This thesis is a qualitative study of the architectural style known as Art Deco that occurred between the years 1920 and 1940. During this period, both Chicago and Bombay were developing their art deco architecture, but in very different ways. Art Deco evolved in Westernized societies, such as Chicago, where the influences of major institutions such as the Chicago School and Modernism were monumental. However, my interests lie within the translation of art deco from a Western environment to an Eastern, colonial influenced environment; where do the ‘gaps’ arise when importing a style such as art deco. By doing this thesis I hope to find similarities and differences in the development of Art Deco style from both the sites. My thesis will be completed in two parts. The first being a historical analysis, including economic, historical, and political developments within Chicago and Bombay between 1920 and 1940. The second part of my thesis will revolve around four case studies, two from each city. These will include analyses of architectural developments, material, technology, and the density of that area. I am narrowing my scope to interpret two case studies from each city, which will be analyzed based upon the above parameters. Specifically, my case study models from Chicago will be the Chicago Board of Trade Building (on Jackson Boulevard in Chicago, 1930) and the Lake Theatre (on the Lake Street Oak Park, 1936); while the examples from Mumbai will be the New India Assurance Building (on Ballard Estate, 1936) and the Metro Cinema (on Mahatma Gandhi Road in Marine Drive, 1938). This study also intends to understand and bridge the blind spots in protecting Art Deco buildings in both the cities by using improvised Historic Preservation laws as its tool to do so.

Arnold Schwartzman's stunning photographs of the finest examples of Art Deco from all over the world are collected here as a celebration of one of the world's most popular decorative styles. Art deco is the 20th century's most glamorous architectural style, and the one that shaped popular ideas of modern luxury. With over 200 photographs, this is a visual celebration of this very popular style. Unlike most other books on the subject that tend to be regionally specific, this book highlights Art Deco buildings from all over the world, from Australia to South America, with an emphasis on London, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, and Paris. Art Deco features much careful and exacting detail, and of special interest in this book are photos that zoom in on murals, mosaics, flooring, ironwork, and other ornamental flourishes. Art Deco began in 1925 and quickly swept the globe becoming the style epitomizing Jazz Age glamor and sophistication. It drew from a variety of influences including ancient Egyptian, Moorish, and Mayan motifs but also modernist movements like Cubism, Fauvism, and De Stijl. Its influence was felt everywhere, from the skylines of New York to Shanghai, and it gained prominence not only with architects and designers but enjoyed a passionate following among the public as well.

Beginning with the dreams of Hollywood and ending in its lobbies and boulevards, A Journey through American Art Deco passes through a series of itineraries that include the most interesting examples of Art Deco, from Chicago to New York, from Denver to Phoenix, from Seattle to Los Angeles and Miami Beach. The most notable highlights of the journey are New York and Los Angeles, with their long list of Art Deco monuments. At the great Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925, American designers encountered the new style, then called moderne. Once in the U.S., European Deco turned into American Deco, utilizing clean, geometric lines and industrial materials such as steel, plastic, and glass, to adorn the interiors of hotels, stores, movie theaters, and transatlantic liners, and to give a characteristic stamp to building exteriors. This new style came to symbolize the country with its combination of art and industry.
