The Art Déco style - The French architecture

Lu 572 fois

The Parisian exhibition of Decorative Arts in 1925 strongly influenced the architecture of Nice. The Art Déco style became popular in the 1930's, replacing the Belle Epoque.
Spaces with clean lines, geometric shapes, straight lines and mosaics all over the town are remains of that era. Besides the emblematic Palais de la Méditerranée, several other Art Déco façades punctuate the Promenade des Anglais, such as the Palais Bel Azur at number 49, or the Forum at number 45.
In Rue de France, at number 134, the Gloria Mansions are also very representative of this style with their stained-glass window, stairs and ironwork.... Other examples are the Notre-Dame-Auxiliatrice church with its mosaics by Mauméjean, the town council room, the Thiers station or even the Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc church.
