Architecture: Mediterranean and Italian Renaissance Revival (1920 - 1940)
The architectural style known as Mediterranean Revival was inspired by the design of Italian Renaissance palaces. By the turn of the twentieth century, prominent architects were designing buildings with the grand but refined look of 16th-century palaces while incorporating the advantages of new building construction technology. With its large, boxy shape; simple stucco exterior; flat roof; and decorative horizontal frieze, Building 35 is an excellent example of the Army Quartermasters' interpretation of Mediterranean Revival.
