About Spanish Architecture
Spanish architecture has a long history in California. It evolved over a few distinct eras, outlined below.
Spanish architecture spread throughout the New World, starting in 1513. Monarchs dictated the guidelines for the construction of missions, cities, homes, and public buildings. Careful consideration was given to the position of cities (so that they may be defended) and the health of their residents - people and livestock alike. Catholic monks built missions to support local trade, provide a safe sanctuary for colonists, and support their religious duties.
In the late 19th century, the West was fenced-in and tamed. The influx of new residents to the burgeoning California cities of San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles created a demand for local institutions like train stations, post offices, and city halls. This period coincided with the Eclectic Movement, a design aesthetic that favored the past. Given California’s history as a Spanish-then-Mexican outpost, the natural expression of Eclectic design was Mission Revival architecture.
Spanish Colonial Revival
From 1915 to 1931, Southern California underwent a period of accelerated growth due, in part, to the migration of the motion picture industry from New York to Los Angeles and the marketing of California by major railroads. Idyllic scenes of palm trees, orange groves, and ocean beaches graced promotional travel pamphlets and posters.
It was during this time that Spanish-influenced design leaped from civic buildings and mansions into middle-class residential homes: Spanish Colonial Revival architecture took off.
Spanish Colonial Revival subgenres include:
