California's Mission Revival
The Mission Revival was pervasive in turn-of-the-century California. It offered the "proper style" for hotels, schools, railroad stations, and other public buildings as well as for houses. This short-lived, but important revival is thoroughly documented in this account of its buildings and architects. Attention is given to the movement's romantic literary background as exploited by promoters, its relation the Arts-and-Crafts aesthetic, and the practical implications of its use of concrete.
