The City of Riverside’s rich history is clearly manifested in its built and natural environments. Unquestionably, the Mission Inn is the most prominent and celebrated landmark tied to a romanticized narrative that lead to the emergence of one of the largest global economies in the world: the State of California.
This year’s symposium will explore Riverside’s agrarian origins that permitted the creation of wealth through farming, land speculation, real estate and entertainment. Trough different perspectives, speakers will explore contributions in planning, design and art from visionaries whose common denominator is the Mission Inn.
1. Attendees will learn the origins of Spanish Revival architecture and its influence on memorable landmarks of Southern California through exploring the Mission Inn’s history
2. Attendees will be able to name the major forces and individuals who created and preserved the Mission Inn before and after California became part of the United States territory.
3. Attendees will discern the value of knowing the history of a place and its influence in planning, architecture and art using the Mission Inn’s history as a case study
4. Attendees will be able to identify how the intersection of planning, history, architecture and art can help improve economic development and health outcomes.
