Synopsis:

Julia Morgan, America's first truly independent female architect, left a legacy of over 700 buildings, many of which are now designated landmarks, in cities throughout California, as well as in Hawaii, Utah, and Illinois. Her work spanned five decades, and the total of her commissions was greater than any other major American architect, including Frank Lloyd Wright. Julia Morgan tells the remarkable story of this architectural pioneer, and features text, drawings, and photographs of the many buildings that still exist.

From the Inside Flap:

Julia Morgan, America's ?rst truly independent female architect, blazed a trail for women in the ?eld and left a legacy of more than 700 buildings (many of which are now designated landmarks) in cities throughout California, as well as in Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, and Missouri. Her work spanned ?ve decades, and her total output was greater than any other major American architect, including Frank Lloyd Wright. Julia Morgan tells the remarkable story of this architectural pioneer and features text, drawings, and photographs of the many buildings that still stand today. Mark Wilson explores the underlying design philosophy that guided a large portion of Julia Morgan's work, as well as the physical, cultural, and historic settings in which her buildings were created. From the William Randolph Hearst Castle at San Simeon to Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland to the Phoebe A. Hearst Memorial Gymnasium for Women in Berkeley, this comprehensive volume offers a fresh exploration on the life and work of a groundbreaking architect.

Mark A. Wilson is an architectural historian who has been writing and teaching about Julia Morgan's work for more than thirty years. He has written two previous books about Bay Area architecture and was a lecturer for the National Trust's Historic Real Estate Program. He holds a B.A. in History and an M.A. in History and Media.
