Archive for art deco capital of the world

Natty Napier

By Linda Tancs

Napier, New Zealand is feted as the Art Deco capital of the world, a term derived from Exposition des Arts Modernes Decoratifs et Industriels, held in Paris in 1925.  The east coast city, dubbed the Nice of the Pacific, has the highest concentration of Art Deco buildings in a single area.  The best way to see it all is by a guided tour plus bus or vintage car excursion.  High season is the GEON Art Deco Weekend in February, including over 200 events, but this sun-kissed city welcomes you anytime.
