I’m a fan of Art Deco

St Andrew’s House, Edinburgh, February 2022

Interestingly, it was the lights outside the old Scottish Office that alerted me to the fact that this building is Art Deco. I think its sheer size and darkness made it feel old, gruff and more gothic than Art Deco.

You get more of an Art Deco / Streamline Moderne feel for the building in the image below, as it looked in 1939.
