Art Deco – never has a period of design influenced so much.
Known as “Arts Décoratifs”, from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925, it is associated not only with architecture but sculpture, furniture, fashion and graphic art. Many of the buildings of this period are still some of the most iconic and much loved such as The Chrysler Building, The Empire State building and the Hover Building.
About the Building
It is continuously affiliated with luxury and glamour combined with rich materials and fine craftsmanship, in fact nothing about Art Deco was cheap, it was a celebration of modernity and progress. The Laboratory Building which forms part of the New River Head manifests all these qualities with vertical clean lines, large windows, bold geometric forms, classical elements and rich materials.
Designed by the architect John Murray Easton who, in 1955 was awarded the Royal gold medal for his contribution to architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects on behalf of the British monarch, The Lab building is somewhat iconic as well as one of the most recognised in the area.
