US and Canadian Art Deco: Notable Architecture

Union Terminal, Cincinnati
It was pointed out to me that my list of favorite Art Deco architectural works listed at the end of my Cincinnati's Union Terminal post was getting lost.

I also noticed that this left little room for comment.

With that in mind, I have expanded that list a bit and posted it separately here. I have two such posts: This one for Art Deco in the United States and Canada, and a second one for Art Deco outside North America. this second post can be found at: Art Deco Outside North America. 

About This List

What follows is a (very incomplete) list of some of the most notable Art Deco buildings. My favorite remains Cincinnati's Union Terminal for personal and stylistic reasons.  I encourage you to read my write-up (with my own photographs) of that Art Deco masterpiece. You can read that post at: Cincinnati's Union Terminal.

Perhaps this post might inspire you to take a look at some of these, especially if they are near where you live.

In any case, I had fun assembling the list, and I hope you enjoy it too.


The United States is without argument the main site for Art Deco. Even though Art Deco was born in France after World War One, it came to its greatest fruition in North America. Art Deco crosses categories and embraces many sub-movements from Aztec Revival to ZigZag Moderne (from A to Z, I couldn't resist the joke).  I have given an overview of what I personally think constitutes the main shared characteristics of the style at: What Is Art Deco? A Little Background.

Long Beach Rescue Mission (1920)
formerly Soft Water Laundry
Long Beach, California

Also, Art Deco is normally dated as beginning in 1925  at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Déccoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, but many architects were creating Art Deco that preceded this date. This list includes (though not many) of these, such as Long Beach's Soft Water Laundry (now the Long Beach Rescue Mission) built in 1920.

Mont Ste.-Marie,
Edmundston, New Brunswick

One of the latest (1952) Art Deco buildings
Similarly, Art Deco is generally seen as ending with World War II. Here, though, no ending date has been generally agreed upon (unlike the decision -- long after the movement had ended) to consider 1925 the movement's beginning).  Art Deco gradually decreased, going through sub-movements such as Streamline Moderne and Starved Classical that toned down what were seen as the excesses of the more prosperous age of the Roaring Twenties. The problem is that no one told the architects of the time that the era had ended. Thus while almost all of the buildings listed here are from the Interwar period, I have also included a sprinkling of later buildings that still fall within the style in my opinion. The latest of these is Edmundston, New Brunswick's Garderie Mont Ste.-Marie (now used an apartment complex) built in 1952.  I know that such a late date technically is probably no longer admissable as "true" Art Deco, but there is no evidence that the Garderie Mont Ste.-Marie was  seen as an intentional throw-back when it was build under the supervision of Monseigneur W. J. Conway.  Moreover, its main entrance really could not be called anything but Art Deco... and so I have included it here.

Certain cities are famously central to the movement. The most famous of these is Miami Beach with the highest concentration of Art Deco masterpieces in the world. There are 375 extant Art Deco buildings in Miami Beach alone. Some of the most notable are listed in the section for Miami Beach, by far the longest list here, and one that only scratches the surface. In the small strip of land there are there are 76 buildings from L. Murray Dixon, 71 from Henry Hohauser and 41 from Albert Anis, arguably the three greatest contributors to the Florida Deco style. While some of these are Mediterranean Revival  (no longer Art Deco) or other styles, most are Art Deco buildings, and many would be the architectural centerpiece for many other US cities.
Miami Beach's Ocean Drive
Greatest concentration of Art Deco in the world

Other major centers of Art Deco are in greater Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago. These are major cities that experienced building booms in the 1920's, so the presence of a rich collection of Art Deco architectural masterpieces in these cities might have been expected.

That said, some of the greatest collections of Art Deco masterworks in the United States can be found where many might not expect to find them (except perhaps for those living in those cities and Art Deco buffs). Among these are the impressive number of superb Art Deco architecture is Tulsa, Oklahoma , Detroit, Michigan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as well as both Dallas and Houston in Texas.

For Canada, I broke with my wandering westward pattern within the provinces, although I list the provinces themselves from East to West.

Canada is second only to the United States in the richness and breadth of its Art Deco building heritage.  Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal are all major centers of Art Deco buildings. Other spots hold pleasant gems, such as Winnipeg's splendid Women's Tribute Memorial Lodge or the gardens Parkwood Estate, home of GM Canada founder Samuel McLaughlin at Oshawa.

Where a province has only a few entries, I have not broken this down by city, but have done so in cases where this might help.

The Art Deco buildings of note for Canada are:

  1. This is a fantastic record of Art Deco Buildings, especially love the Miami buildings.

    For Detroit, a few omissions, the Maccabees Building and New Center/Albert Kahn Building,

    In Highland Park, the Michigan Bell Building and Highland Towers Apartment Building (heavily fire damaged)
