Hidden Engineer: The Designs of Julia Morgan

Exhibit currently on display at the Wurster Hall library

Julia Morgan was a pioneer throughout her professional life. The first woman to enter and complete an education at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, she later designed Hearst Castle, and left more than 700 buildings throughout California and the West. Among other reasons, she is notable for having designed so many women-commissioned projects. This exhibit is mounted in conjunction with the Landmarks California Commission’s Julia Morgan 2012 celebration, and re-examines some of Julia Morgan’s most influential designs, using material from the Environmental Design Archives, Visual Resources Collection, and Environmental Design Library.
