Art Deco Skyscraper
About this creation
I was inspired to create this model by a visit to Hoover Dam and it's 1930s art deco design. However the building takes it overall slab shape from the GE Building in Rockefeller Center in New York and some cues from Radio City Music Hall. All the edges are rounded and one side of the building cascades like a waterfall toward a reflecting pool at the base.

I love Art Deco. The finish and attention to detail are outstanding. I wish there were more structures like this. Please check out my Fisher Building (less detail but taller!)
