🏙 ARCHITECTURE STYLES BEHIND NYC LANDMARKS ✨
Dozens of architecture styles surround each other from different periods in history, artistic movements, and architectural philosophies to create the unique skyline of New York City.
👉 Art Nouveau – The Little Singer Building “Designed by architect Ernest Flagg, the Little Singer Building was built in 1902 and is located south of Prince Street on Broadway. The tracery and ornamental red detailing on the facade of the building and the curvatures of the iron balconies exemplify its Art Nouveau style. Originating in the 1890s in France and Belgium, Art Nouveau was an artistic movement that emerged in response to and as a rejection of the Industrial Revolution and the rigidness of formal architecture. In contrast, this style emphasizes curves inspired by natural forms like flowers and plants.
As a result, the philosophy of Art Nouveau was founded on the idea that artistic design should be a part of everyday objects and life. Identifying features of Art Nouveau style include asymmetrical shapes, extensive use of curved glass and arches, and motifs and ornamentation inspired by nature and natural forms.”
