Meanwhile, on the other side of the continent, architect Addison Mizner was adding new excitement to Spanish Revival architecture.

Born in California, Mizner had worked in San Francisco and New York. At age 46, he moved to Palm Beach, Florida for his health. He designed elegant Spanish style houses for wealthy clients, purchased 1,500 acres of land in Boca Raton, and launched an architectural movement known as the Florida Renaissance.
