Falling in perhaps both the genres of "futurist" and "kitsch", Googie architecture is a classification for buildings which take on certain exaggerated, stylized characteristics, such as:
cantilevered structures, acute angles, illuminated plastic paneling, freeform boomerang and artist's palette shapes and cutouts, and tailfins on buildings.

Wikipedia also does a great job of elaborating on where in the U.S. these features are common (Las Vegas, Miami, Southern California); however, no examples of where else in the world this kind of architecture could be found.
Is it exclusive to the U.S.? If not, where else should I travel to see more of it? Perhaps Russia has some places due to the style's connection to the Space Race?
