Too much curves.

Just enough for me. I'm a fan of Eric Mendelsohn, in case you don't know, and he was the Great Master of Curves.

more "streamline moderne" than art deco?

To transpressnz:
It depends on how we define Streamline Modern - as a separate style or as a movement inside Deco.

I always think of it as within deco, and this particular building has many art deco features other than the streamline moderne ones you see in this shot - see my full set on Flickr
