Description

Julia Morgan Legacy Event

Sunday, March 1

11 am - 12:30 pm - Presentation by Chris Marino with Q & A

12:30 - 2 pm - Guest House open

Join the Santa Monica Conservancy in a special commemoration of architect Julia Morgan, California’s first licensed woman architect. Noted for her collaboration with William Randolph Hearst to create Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Morgan left a legacy of more than 700 projects in her nearly five decades of practice. Posthumously awarded the AIA’s highest honor, a Gold Medal, her brilliant and pioneering work continues to gain public recognition. Morgan designed the Guest House and pool, which comprise the historic core of the Beach House.

The celebration kicks off at 11 am with a presentation by Chris Marino, Curator of the Environmental Design Archives at UC Berkeley, on the materials and stories within the Julia Morgan collections at UC Berkeley. The Julia Morgan collections consist of architectural drawings, correspondence, photographs, and more.

Following Marino’s presentation, guests may visit the Guest House to see Morgan’s work first-hand.
