The northern part of Brussels is home to some remarkable Art Deco buildings, mainly single-family houses and small apartment buildings, which often use highly original layouts. This guided tour through the districts of Jette and Ganshoren explores the different trends within the Art Deco movement and shows every possible type of façade decoration you could imagine with interplays of colours, materials and shapes. Some buildings feature masterpieces of wrought-iron decoration, others make reference to Cubism, regionalism and the ocean liners which linked Europe and America that fascinated architects in the inter-war period.
