Mediterranean Revival (1917-1930s)
The Mediterranean Revival style defined Miami during the Boom of the 1920s. The style reflects the architectural influences of the Mediterranean coast: Italian, Byzantine, Moorish themes from southern Spain, and French. Applied Spanish baroque decoration is generously used around openings, balconies, and cornices. Parapets, twisted columns, pediments, and other classical details also are frequently used. Arches are often featured. The most common materials are stucco walls, red tile roofs, wrought iron grilles and railings, wood brackets and balconies, and oolitic limestone, ceramic tile and terra cotta for ornament. Patios, courtyards, balconies, and loggias replace the front porch. Fenestration is usually the casement type. With its elaborate detailing, Mediterranean Revival architecture works best in large buildings.

Historic Buildings - The Park - The Presidio Trust
While the Mission Revival style was based on the shapes of the Spanish Colonial missions, the Mediterranean Revival evolved from a rekindled interest in Italian Renaissance palaces. By the turn of the century, prominent architects were designing buildings incorporating details of sixteenth-century buildings and utilizing newly developed construction technologies. Building 35 is a great example of the Army Quartermasters' interpretation of the Mediterranean Revival, with its large, boxy shape that could accommodate many different building uses, simple stuccoed exterior, flat roof and decorative horizontal frieze.
