This Sunday, March 3 join the city of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Conservancy for the annual Julia Morgan Legacy Day from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Annenberg Community Beach House!
Best known as the architect of Hearst Castle, American architect and engineer JuliaMorgan was one of three remarkable individuals, along with Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst, who shaped the legacy of the Annenberg Community Beach House site. Morgan designed what is currently known as the Marion Davies Guest House and the Beach House pool, which comprise the historic core of the Annenberg Community Beach House.
During this free event, Julia Morgan expert Karen McNeill, Ph.D, will provide a presentation, “Julia Morgan: Engineering a Legacy,” highlighting Morgan’s engineering expertise. The presentation will expand on Morgan's training as a civil engineer, including how her studies of innovative structural techniques in Paris informed her creative architectural designs.
Event attendees will also be invited to tour and view the Morgan-designed Marion Davies Guest House and Beach House pool. Access to the pool will be for viewing only.
