i love this little modern moderne art deco tiny ocean liner with gun slots building.

it does look like a 1930’s version of an albert speer spaceship ocean liner, ready to fly to the moon and battle moon people (thus: the things on the roof that look like gun slots). and am i using the vaguely right nomenclature? is this a moderne building? i always feel kind of uncomfortable writing ‘moderne’, as it sounds made up and wrong. but maybe it’s valid architectural nomenclature?

oh, i also just realized that this might actually be a well known building as designed by a well known architect. and, once again, i’m confronted with my gaping ignorance as regards well known buildings as designed by well known architects.

well, regardless of it’s history or nomenclature or patrimony it’s a beautiful little jewel box of a tiny ocean liner building.

thanks
