Expanded Description:


ART NOUVEAU
Art Nouveau (also called Jugendstil in Germany, Secessionism in Austria, Modernisme in Spain…) is an international style of architecture that was popular in the late 19th and early 20th century (1880-1914). It used opulent, stylized designs that are characterized by curvelinear lines and the use of plant inspired motifs. Wikipedia described the style’s characteristics as “dynamic, undulating and flowing…” and noted that the buildings’ moldings seemed “to spring to life and ‘grow’ into plant-derived forms.”

The highly stylized nature of Art Nouveau design was expensive to produce, and so by the start of the First World War the style became less favored. It was replaced by the more streamlined, rectilinear architecture of the Art Deco movement which was less expensive to build and had closer ties to the new materials and construction methods that the industrial revolution created.

The wikipedia page has a good list of Nouveau architects, and places where the style was centered, which should get you started. Two great examples of Art Nouveau are the Grand Palais and the Porte Dauphine station Metro entrance in Paris.

ART DECO
Art Deco developed between 1920 and 1939 in response to Art Nouveau and many other modern styles that developed at the beginning of the 20th century. The style incorporated the looks of new technology, such as the streamlining of airplanes. Other popular themes were trapezoids, zigzagging, geometric shapes, and jumbled shapes. Commonly used materials included aluminium, stainless steel, with lacquer, inlaid wood, and exotic animal skins used in the interior design. It was considered elegant and ultra-modern in its time and as a result it became very popular, particularly in the United States.

Some famous examples of Deco are the auditorium of Radio City Music Hall and the Empire State Building in New York.


CUBIST ARCHITECTURE
Major characteristic of the Cubist style of art is how the background planes intersect with those of the object, overlapping each other in such a way that they form shallow undefined spaces. The influence of this cubist characteristic became a hallmark of the development of a new type of architecture in several European countries in the first quarter of the 20th century. The genuine Cubist architecture is very rare, but you can find some really amazing cubist buildings in France, Germany and especially in the Czech Republic, where Cubism flourished....

Fine example of Cubist architecture is House of the Black Madonna in Prague.
