The bold lines and decorative details of Art Deco have stood the test of time and are evident in the architecture of cities like Washington and Baltimore. Richard Striner and co-author Melissa Blair explore the most significant Art Deco buildings still standing (and mourn those that have been lost) and examine the contrasts and similarities in the two cities.
Richard Striner is professor of history at Washington College; Melissa Blair is an architectural historian in Maryland.
Presented in partnership with Johns Hopkins University Press, AIA Baltimore, and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation.
