Coming Up Next: Dr. Karen McNeill, Architect Julia Morgan and the San Francisco Chinatown YWCA Building
My next guest on the Saturday, July 22 broadcast is Dr. Karen McNeill. She will be on the phone with us on Conversations to illuminate everyone on renowned American architect Julia Morgan. Dr. McNeill is considered the nation's foremost authority on the life and legacy of Julia Morgan.
As the first female architect licensed in California and a graduate of the Ecole des Beau-Arts in Paris a century ago, her best known work was Hearst Castle in San Simeon. She designed over 700 buildings throughout the western USA.
Morgan also designed the Chinatown YWCA building (pictured above) in San Francisco, now the museum and headquarters of the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA). Click this link for pictures from my visit: http://marvelsofchina.blogspot.com/2017/05/up-close-and-personal-chinese.html
I visited the CHSA in March, admiring its many Chinese architectural elements and details -knowing that I had to learn more about this extraordinary, pioneering architect and share it all with you.
We'll also feature our usual weekly words of wisdom in the Confucius Moment. On Treasures of China let your imagination soar as we'll take off for a new, amazing destination. Learn about what's going on and things to see at museums on the Weekly Almanac. We'll have more for you on Chinese Fun Facts, too.
