"Coral Gables, the City Beautiful, stands out as a rare pearl in South Florida, a
cohesive community built on a grand Mediterranean Revival architectural style to
create an overall harmony with the environment. Early city planners and
visionaries were influenced by the aesthetics of the City Beautiful Movement
that swept across America in the early 1900’s. Inspired by the works of
landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, who designed New York’s Central
Park, The City Beautiful Movement encouraged the use of wide tree-lined avenues,
monumental buildings, winding roadways, green space, ornate plazas and fountains
galore. All these elements of style have been and continue to be incorporated by
Coral Gables city planners."
