Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

London is rarely considered an 'Art Deco Mecca'. But actually there is a place for all styles in the British capital - with a rather good deal of Deco and the 30s Modernism. Just a few examples:

I used to have a bunch of pics of art deco around the Los Angeles area, I should see if I can find them.

Thanks Lord K! That first shot of the Adelphi House is really iconic.

It may not be efficient, but I think a titan or four holding your building up should be a standard of architecture.

Initially I wanted to post only Charles Holden's works, but afterwords decided to make it a little bit more diverse.
