The Roadside Architecture section currently includes a special look at Googie Architecture as well as the Polynesian themed Tiki Style. Both were a reflection of America's post-war attitude. See them both at Roadside Peek's Googie Architecture and Tiki Style sections.

Although it's not "architecture" per se, neon still deserves a place in the sun... 'er spotlight. Check out all of the neon signs here at Roadside Peek's Roadside Neon.

Here's a deco building located in the Portland area. This building looks like its home to some sort of library or public office. In some ways, the building looks like a miniature deco Sears store. See this deco store and more at Roadside Peek's Deco Delights.
