The Pueblo Revival style is one of the few styles born in America. The style was directly influenced by Native American pueblo architecture and has been adapted to both private and public architecture. It works particularly well for multifamily residences, which recall the original multifamily nature of Native American pueblos. While the revival likely originated in California, the highest concentration of examples is in Arizona and New Mexico. Today, Pueblo Revival architecture has remained a Southwestern United States style and is rare in other regions of the country.
