    Anyone else here like art-deco design? I don\'t know ...

    much about it, but I sure do like it when I see it.

    Art moderne is nice too, but as a neophyte I often confuse them. Any interesting examples of these architectures in your areas (other than classic examples like the Chrysler building, etc.)?

    We have an original design McDonalds, with the golden arches. Does that count?
