The Sundial Bridge, commonly known as the Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge, was built in 2004. It is a suspension bridge that crosses the Tuolumne River near the University of California, Davis. The Sundial Bridge is one of several works by Calatrava in the United States.

What building styles did the Spanish use when they built Santa Fe?

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad used white stucco, red tile roofs, and round arches in its terminals and hotels, all features of the Spanish Mission Revival style that originated in California and inspired home builders in New Mexico. The style can be seen in buildings as far away as South Dakota.

Spanish missions were religious structures devoted to Catholic saints. The first mission was built in San Diego in 1771. The most famous is probably the one in Los Angeles. After the Mexican War with America, Spain gave up its claim on California. A group of settlers led by Don Luis Vasquez arrived at the site of today's Santa Fe station in 1827 and began building missions to replace those destroyed by American soldiers. When the railroad came through in 1881, it used the same stylized arches and tiles that had been popular a decade earlier with the mining community in Silver City. These buildings still stand today in Santa Fe's downtown district.

Like many other American railroads, the AT&SF relied on local builders to help design their stations. The company hired an architect who designed several dozen stations across New Mexico. Each station was unique but all had several common elements: a U-shaped layout with an entrance on each side of the tracks, small rooms for office use, and a large waiting room with paneled walls and a domed ceiling.

When was the San Luis Rey de Francia mission built?

The San Luis Rey de Francia Mission, founded in 1798, is located in a protected valley just east of Oceanside. The current church is the third to be built on the site between 1811 and 1815. The church was the biggest structure in Northern California when it was finished. It has been called "the most important religious building in San Diego County after San Diego Cathedral."

The first mission station was established near the present-day town of Escondido by Padre José Antonio Navarro in 1771. This first settlement did not last long because there were no water sources or arable land for farming. In 1776, the second mission was established about 30 miles north of Los Angeles by Francisco Garcés. This mission also failed because of lack of water. In 1782, the third mission was established 15 miles south of present-day San Diego by Junípero Serra with an initial staff of 39 missionaries. This mission succeeded because of its location next to abundant water sources. By 1808, it had 140 members, the largest congregation at the mission.

In 1804, the Mexican government ordered that all missions be moved away from coastal areas because they were vulnerable to attack by pirates and indigenous people. Thus, the San Luis Rey mission was relocated 100 miles inland to a site near the present-day city of San Diego by the name of La Florida.

What was Mission Santa Cruz built of?

Its major feature, a long adobe edifice built as dwelling between 1822 and 1824, is all that remains of the Mission Santa Cruz, the 12th of 21 Spanish missions established in California. The building is significant for its architecture as well as its historical significance.

The mission was located on land that had been given to the Catholic Church by the indigenous people called the Ohlones. The mission was constructed to convert these indigenous people to Christianity and to teach them how to farm European crops such as grapes, wheat, and vegetables. After about 1790, most of the Native Americans moved away from their traditional hunting and fishing lifestyles to become agricultural laborers under contract to provide food for the missionaries. These Indians were known as "reductions".

After the Mexican War of Independence, Mexico became responsible for defending its territory from invasion by other countries including Spain. To do this, they created a military force called the Guardia Nacional which included both soldiers and priests. The guardia nacional was stationed at the mission to protect it from attack by American settlers. In April 1826, an armed group of American settlers attempted to take over the mission but were repelled by the guardia nacional with loss of life. This event caused a war between America and Mexico which ended in August 1827 with a treaty that left the mission undisturbed.
