The architect - Julia Morgan

Her brief Biography

Julia Morgan is best known for the private commission of Wm. Randolph Hearst’s estate at San Simeon and a large array of institutional buildings, including the interior of the YWCA for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, numerous YWCA facilities, UC Berkeley Hearst Greek Theater and Women’s Gymnasium, Mills College El Campanil clock tower, and University High School (the original Burke School). She also designed a large number of residences in Pacific & Presidio Heights, Russian Hill, Sea Cliff and the bay area.

While Julia Morgan’s projects reflect a diversity of styles and materials, her Beaux-Arts training married logic and function to aesthetics and ornamentation. Renaissance Revival, Tudor, Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean styles were all part of her architectural vocabulary.
