Cathay Building - Art Deco Architecture?

Yes, in the car again, taken from my window. This building has the original building facade but a brand new one behind. Do you call this art deco style? Anyway it is quite unusual in Singapore. It was built in the 1930s and I was told, the first building in Singapore to have escalators in the 1960s. However this article on the building does not mention the escalators.


  1. Yes I would think it is art deco

  2. Must look out for this building when I visit Singapore soon
