Art Deco Style Architecture

Dallas Modern Architecture

As Art Deco swept the country in 1936, the Centennial Exhibition buildings at Fair Park were designed in this style. Several Art Moderne or Art Deco residences were designed at the same time.

4637 Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, Texas

This home was designed by John Astin Perkins for the Texas Centennial in 1936. Its geometric patterns more closely reflect Art Deco than that of Art Moderne homes designed for the State Fair. This home was originally owned by Dad Joiner who first discovered the oil that made H.L. Hunt famous.
