The Art Deco style in Boston never did flourished as it did in cities like New York, Tulsa and Miami, Florida, yet Boston has some excellent examples of the style. What remains today must be protected and preserved for they illustrate the history of the people of Boston.
More than any other architectural style, Art Deco celebrates the triumph of architecture, industrialism and commercialism. Below are some details of some of Boston’s most beloved Art Deco masterpieces.
For a sumptuous view of an Art Deco interior, visit Trinity Church on Copley Square and spend a few minutes admiring the 1938 re-decoration of the chancel by the prestigious architectural firm of Magginis and Walsh.
By any means, this is not a listing of every Art Deco building in the city, but a few details to spark interest in the style. To learn more about the city’s Art Deco architecture, visit the Art Deco Society of Boston’s website.
