Art-Deco Design – This ornamental style, canonized by the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris, was widely adopted in Western architecture and design until the late 1930s. Art-Deco designs, based on streamline, angular or cursive shapes, were frequent in many Bauhaus-style Jerusalem buildings of this period. Most of the local Art-Deco design elements occur in ironwork, on gates, doors, window grilles and railings.
