At a Glance

Join writer and historian James Dalessandro as he presents a sweeping portrait of architect and structural engineer Julia Morgan. She designed Hearst Castle and over 700 California buildings. In 1902, she was the first woman graduate of France's l'École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts and first woman admitted to the AIA in California. She spent three decades as designer and builder for the Hearst family and revolutionized structural engineering in earthquake-prone California, saving countless lives and buildings.
