E MAIL ME! Sign My Guestbook View My Guestbook In 2002, the Russian Economy saw its fourth-consecutive year of solid economic growth; sound budget management that produced another surplus; a stable currency; reasonable inflation; a world-leading stock market; recognition as a market economy; and, of course, a booming oil sector, which is cranking out 8 million barrels per day for the first time in a decade, meaning Russia's most important industry is back where it started. See the Economy page for a review of the Russian economy during 2002. The armed conflict in Chechnya continued to cause problems beyond that region, with terrorist acts being carried out in neighbouring regions and as far away as Moscow. These culminated in the tragic events of last October where the armed siege of a Dubrovka theater ended with a tremendous loss of life; although, had the terrorists succeeded in blowing up the building, the number of casualties would have been far higher. The theater recently reopened after an extensive refurbishment and performances of the musical "Nord-Ost" were staged once again. March 5 this year is the 50th anniversary of the deaths of Stalin and Prokoviev. Prokoviev died on the same day as Stalin, but because of the outpouring of grief and period of official mourning over Stalin's death, it was some time before the country noticed that Prokoviev had also died.

Welcome to Architecture that reaches for the sky. As the title indicates, this is a web-site that is dedicated to skyscrapers and those of us that love them. We are, as you will see, still under construction. Still, we have chosen to make the finished parts public, since some information is better than none. We do not inted this site to be for architects only, in fact we feel that our primal target group is not architects. The skyscraper-lover is who we want to satisfy.

One of the most popular and best known skyscrapers in the world is the Flatiron Building. Built by Daniel H. Burnham in 1902 as the headquarters of the George A. Fuller construction company, it "was only briefly called the Fuller Building and soon became known as the Flatiron because of its distinctive shape." Unfortunately, the picture on the right is the only construction photo Nash/McGrath have included in their book. It shows the underlying steel-structure of the building. As Buckminster Fuller remarked, the Flatiron dated to an era when "architects were still pretending there was no steel." The Flatiron looks like an ocean steamer moving towards us. The 21-storey, 307-foot tall building was the tallest skyscraper north of Wall Street when it was built." The style is sometimes called "Burnham Baroque", its "rippling terra-cotta curtain wall decorated with lion's heads, wreaths, and archictectural masks is a link with a classical past."

NYC Architecture - Art Deco

The period termed "art deco" manifested itself roughly between the two world wars, or 1920 to 1939. Many actually stretch this period back to 1900 and even as far as the late 1950's, but work of this time is generally considered to be more of an influence to the Art Deco style, or having been influenced by the style. As with many other art movements, even work of today is still being influenced by the past. This period of design and style did not just affect architecture, but all of the fine and applied arts as well. Furniture, sculpture, clothing, jewelry and graphic design were all influenced by the Art Deco style.
Common themes Basically it was a "modernization" of many artistic styles and themes from the past. You can easily detect in many examples of Art Deco the influence of Far and Middle Eastern design, Greek and Roman themes, and even Egyptian and Mayan influence. Modern elements included echoing machine and automobile patterns and
shapes such as stylized gears and wheels, or natural elements such as sunbursts and flowers.
