About this product
- DescriptionAs the designer of tourist attraction Hearst Castle on the California coast, Julia Morgan was widely kwn as an outstanding architect. Though women architects were unusual, she was t alone. Many other women practiced architecture in the late 19th and early 20th century in California, though their work was often overshadowed by the work of male architects. This book presents the lives, careers, and work of fifty of these largely unkwn pioneers. It chronicles the triumphs and challenges these path-breaking women faced in their pursuit of entering and claiming space in the male-dominated field of architecture. Included are photographs of buildings, portraits of the architects, and some blueprints. Each biography includes vital data, a description of the career, a list of kwn buildings and work, and a bibliography. Four appendices address female students at the University of California, Berkeley, women certified by California to practice architecture, members of women's architectural societies, and female members of the American Institute of Architects.
