Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation
Beverly Willis is adding her voice to a new podcast featuring discussions about the lives and careers of female pioneers of American Architecture. Going beyond the scholarship of the award-winning website Pioneering Women of American Architecture, our podcast New Angle: Voice details the struggles and triumphs of six leading women who have personified achievement in a primarily male dominated field.
Welcome to New Angle: Voice. Episode 1 takes us on an earthquaking tour from San Francisco to Paris and back, with Julia Morgan (1872-1957), the first woman to attend the architecture program at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the first woman to receive the AIA Gold Medal. Special thanks in this episode to Brandi Howell, Alexandra Lange, Julia Donoho, Karen McNeill, Victoria Kastner, Karen Fiene, Justin Hoover, Amy Hart and Jim Parks, the women of the Monday Club of San Luis Obispo, Laura Sorvetti, Mark Wilson, and Aislinn McNamara. The archival audio of Sara Holmes Boutelle is from Boutelle's Julia Morgan collection at the Special Collections and Archives, Cal Poly University, San Luis Obispo. New Angle: Voice is produced by Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation. Your host is Cynthia Phifer Kracauer, AIA.
