The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Northern California Chapter (ICAA Northern California) launched the Julia Morgan Awards in celebration of its 10th anniversary in 2014. ICAA Northern California established these awards to recognize architects, designers, artisans, students, builders, and patrons on a local level for their excellence in the contemporary practice and support of the classical traditions. Named for nationally renowned Bay Area architect and classicist, Julia Morgan (1872-1957), it is the goal of the Chapter to educate students, professionals, and laymen about the enduring excellence, appeal, and importance of the classical vernacular in design. By honoring those who contribute to its advancement through continued exposure and ongoing recognition, these awards will laud practitioners and patrons for years to come. The Julia Morgan Awards are given to those individuals, firms, and patrons who practice and value these traditions in Northern California and, in turn, build on the enduring legacy of the great Julia Morgan.
In 2017, the ICAA Northern California Chapter also launched its inaugural Legacy Dinner. Thanks to the participants’ generosity, the Chapter will be able to expand their educational programming, launch the ICAA New Heights program for junior high school students locally, and expand their scholarship program for pupils, professionals, and their extended audience.
The Julia Morgan Awards and Legacy Dinner are celebrated biannually, alternating each year. The former has been held in 2014 and 2016, and the latter in 2017.
