Julia Morgan Legacy Event

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 special presentation by Morgan scholar Karen McNeill, Ph.D. Dr. McNeill is currently writing a biography of Julia Morgan, and has lectured extensively on Morgan’s work in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Her studies focus on women and gender in the architectural profession, and the leadership of women in the Progressive Era. Following Dr. McNeill’s presentation, guests may visit the Guest House and pool deck to see Morgan’s work first-hand.
