Annenberg Beach House Celebrates Sunday Mark Julia Morgan’s Legacy and Women Architects at the Annenberg Community Beach House

Sunday, March 5, all are invited to join the Santa Monica Conservancy and the Association for Women in Architecture + Design (AWA+D) in a special commemoration of architect Julia Morgan, California’s first female 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 American Institute of Architect’s highest honor, a Gold Medal, her brilliant and pioneering work has only recently won public recognition.

There are two notable free activities for the public to participate in this Sunday to commemorate the life and work of Julia Morgan:

Tour the Morgan-designed Guest House and pool from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. with docents from the Santa Monica Conservancy who will provide insights into Morgan’s life and pioneering work.

Participate in the AWA+D panel “Women Designers Then and Now” from 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Morgan’s challenges as a pioneering female architect have been well documented during and after her career. As we mark 60 years since her passing in 1957, come learn about what challenges still remain for women today, and what has changed. Panelists include:

  • Pooja Bhagat, City Architect, City of Santa Monica;
  • Claudia Carol, Senior Associate, Planning & Urban Design Practice Area Leader, Gensler;
  • Gere Kavanaugh, Gere Kavanaugh Designs;
  • Stephanie Reich, Design and Historic Preservation Planner, City of Santa Monica; and
  • Bill Stern, Executive Director of the Museum of California Design, will moderate.

The event is free and reservations are requested. Seating for the presentation is limited. For more information and to RSVP, visit www.juliamorganlegacy2017.eventbrite.com or call 310.458.4904. The Annenberg Community Beach House is at 415 Pacific Coast Hwy. Parking is $3 per hour, $8 per day.
