New Orleans is the closest thing to Miami perhaps.

Of course not, but they are unique in that they are dominated by that style.

With regard to France, you're talking about Art Nouveau, not Art Deco.

France is known for its Art Nouveau which is Belgian, just like the Belgian French fries.

Art Deco is more of an American thing.

You are correct. The first notable example of Art Deco architecture was the Chrysler Building in New York City. The styles are alike but different; Nouveau is concerned with bringing natural forms into the architecture; Deco is a nod to modernism, particularly in technology.

I took a small course on it, I was told Art Nouveau is supposed to recreate nature, leaves, flowers, circular shapes.



Then WWI came and the economic problems worldwide influenced architecture, this led into a more austere form of Art nouveau called Art Deco.

Art Nouveau was born in Belgium, and was highly influential in France, Spain, Germany and other parts of Europe.

Art Deco in a way evolved from Art Nouveau and it was a big hit in America. Due to the influence of the US in north and South America Art Deco became very prominent in many cities all over the Americas. (From Buenos Aires, Rio, to Havana, To Miami, to NYC, to Montreal)



At least what I was told.


For those that confuse the two (many do)
This is an art nouveau poster


Art Deco
