Craftsman, neoclassical,
Spanish colonial revival

At the start of the 20th century,
California architecture pulled

away from Victorian fussiness.
Instead, there was a reverence
for simpler forms and nature,
embodied in the Craftsman
style. Powerful neoclassicism,
with hints of ancient Greece
and Rome, muscled in with the
1915 Panama Pacific Expo in
San Francisco, while the opening of the Panama Canal in
1914 spurred a Spanish
colonial revival in San Diego.

Hotel Del
Coronado

Years of prosperity after World
War I produced new exuberance. Santa Barbara, rocked
by an earthquake in 1925,
rebuilt itself as an Andalusian
hill town, sparking the nickname "The American Riviera."
San Francisco added art deco
skyscrapers, and L.A. built a
27-story city hall patterned after
Greece's massive Mausoleum at
Halicarnassus. Nature remained
a strong influence too.

Modernism and
theme-park fantasy

During the post WWII years,
modernism flourished in openplanned houses with window
walls and equally sleek furnishings, especially in desert communities around Palm Springs.
In cities, glass-and-steel high
rises soared skyward. At the
same time, a new eclecticism developed with the rise of Disneyland and its ebullient and playful
style. STYLE WATCH Midcentury

Huge projects, many of them
