“Revival?” What does it mean?

“Revivalism” in architecture is the use of visual styles that consciously echo the

style of a previous architectural era.

Other examples of “Revivalism” in architecture: Greek, Gothic, Romanesque, Jacobean, Renaissance, Moorish, Tudor,

Spanish Colonial, Pueblo, others.

Page 8: Mission Revival

The Arts and Crafts Movement (roughly 1890-1925) boasted the bungalow as its

preeminent residential architectural form. Designs eventually drew inspiration from

specifically American antecedents, including the California Spanish Missions.

The Mission Revival movement enjoyed its greatest popularity between 1890 and 1915, through numerous residential,

commercial, and institutional structures. Schools and railroad depots, particularly in the Western and Southwestern U.S. used this easily recognizable architectural style.

The California Mission System

The Spanish missions in California comprise a series of religious and military outposts

established by Spanish Catholics of the Franciscan Order between 1769 and 1823 to spread the Christian faith among the local Native Americans. The missions

represented the first major effort by Europeans to colonize the Pacific

Coast region, and gave Spain a valuable toehold in the frontier land.

21 Missions were built in a style reminiscent of Spanish buildings that the priests were familiar with. In North America, however, the structures needed

to be built by unskilled laborers using limited materials like wood, rock, and mud bricks (stucco).

The Utah Connection

• The historical Escalante & Dominguez Expedition of 1776 was conducted to find an overland route from Santa Fe to the

Missions of California.

• The Expedition went north as far as Vernal then came down Spanish Fork Canyon to

Utah County and into the western Utah desert before returning to Santa Fe.

An ode to Mission Revival

Give me neither Romanesque nor Gothic;

much less Italian Renaissance, and least of all English Colonial —

this is California — give me Mission.• Anonymous, 1924
