Art Moderne (1925-1940)



Though more commonly associated with commercial buildings, there are some examples of this style in residences in Rock Island. The Art Moderne style is characterized by a flat roof and a streamlined emphasis through the use of horizontal lines, courses and patterns. Occasionally, the style utilized rounded corners. There is also a greater emphasis on metals, such as aluminum, and the decorative use of concrete.
