The Exotic Revival Style marked America's interest in historical architecture, borrowing from Middle Eastern, Asian, Egyptian, Central American, and other influences. Architects used these cultural influences to express their heritage or create a sense of community, embrace new aesthetics, and to push the boundaries of architectural creativity and exuberance. The 1920s were a heyday of Exotic Revival architecture; attributable to a number of factors, including archaeological discoveries, popular media, accessibility of travel, and Hollywood fantasy. This course explores the various characterizations and history of these styles such as Mayan Revival, Egyptian Revival, Byzantine Revival, Moorish Revival, and others.
