On June 28, 2014 Julia Morgan became the first woman in the 144 year history of the AIA to receive the Gold Medal. The medal, which is solid gold was accepted by Julia Morgan’s great niece North and her great grand niece Lauren Woodland. The honor was met with a standing ovation from her peers. It’s about time.
Julia Morgan, Architect (1872-1957)
Julia Morgan has won the 2014 AIA Gold medal posthumously!! The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has awarded this metal for 106 years. This is the first to a woman. It is a powerful statement for woman and architects everywhere. Yippie! What a historical event and I’m right in the middle of it all!
I’m so excited about Julia Morgan and the coming year! I know it’s going to be a big one.
