AIASF Lecture by Sandhya Sood

December 18, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Houses that Work, Houses that Grow: Learning from Julia Morgan,

 Lecture by Sandhya Sood

California’s first woman architect, Julia Morgan led a proficient practice in San Francisco for almost half a century from 1904 onwards with over 700 buildings to her credit. She also designed many houses in the regional tradition of the San Francisco Bay Area that have endured a century of habitation, absorbing changing lifestyles and culture over the decades. Presenting slides of photographs and drawings that have rarely been seen or published, this lecture will evaluate Morgan’s successful house designs to examine their timeless qualities and spatial attributes that make them so livable, usable and sustainable over time.
