Central Santa Barbara offers a viable platform for fascinated minds to appreciate how the architecture at that time was conceived. The design of buildings, and details representing the relation each building had with the historical aesthetics of those times is also useful when studying the Hispanic architecture. For example, a roof design has a colonial design that can also be seen in colonial cities such as Cartagena, Mompox or San Juan in Puerto Rico. Santa Barbara has devoted a lot of energies to cultivate its obligation to the architectural conservation. New laws were introduced to cut the unsettling effect of new constructions on the agreement of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. New constructions, particularly in El Pueblo Viejo, must follow firm city guidelines and regulations to shrink a likely incompatibility with the historic architecture. When in Santa Barbara, Kenny Slaught proposes the observation of significant efforts that the city has made to add to the preservation of the splendid architecture, even if this does not display the American trend created in the area as an effect of the British presence in the area that substantially influenced how local architecture has arisen.
