Not just architecture, but also manufactured goods. Here, an example of the first camera I owned in 1961; a simple view-finder with four speeds, but the quality shows that this is meant to last, and indeed it has.

As far as the history of the world goes, Art Deco is not that old, but it was definitely a period where style was important. These are all from the same building, a state government building now used by the Ohio Supreme Court.
