I don’t get how you could tear something like this out of a building!?!

It’s a shame, I know… but every decade / year / fad / iconic trend has its day… and what may be retro and design-savvy to look back on now was tired and expired within a few years (at most) of this decor’s inception. I personally wish everything was still Deco and the streamlined lengths of furniture and architecture spoke of speeding towards the great future… but then I wouldn’t appreciate it anymore, because it would be common place and boring. Better to appreciate the talented designers of the time and marvel at their creations… knowing that one day, they will have their time again.

Dylan-
Well said. My original comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek but it is hard to look at that stuff and realize someone actually went through there tearing everything out and chucking it in the trash. Wonder if anyone was able to snag one of those kiosk things and take it home? I know it’s a bit myopic of me, but somehow I can’t imagine a younger generation in 40 years drooling over old pictures of the San Francisco Metreon circa 1999 (the best example of purely late 20th century architecture and design I can think of off the top of my head). But then again, whenever I talk to my parents about how great 70′s design is they act like I’m crazy.
