Julia Morgan may be best known as the architect who spent nearly 30 years working on Hearst Castle. But Morgan was a trailblazer -- at the turn of the twentieth century, she was the first woman admitted to a renowned architecture program in Paris and she became the first woman licensed to practice architecture in California. Over the course of her career, Morgan designed and built more than 700 buildings, including rebuilding San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel after the 1906 earthquake. We'll explore Morgan's legacy and look at her role as a leader in the Bay Area's Arts and Craft movement. Tell us: what's your favorite Julia Morgan building?
