The Berkeley City Club is an historic landmark, designed in 1929 by architect Julia Morgan. Originally the Women’s City Club, it now operates as a hotel, special event venue, and private club.
The City Club is known for its steel-reinforced concrete walls and ceilings (artfully fashioned to look like wood), leaded glass windows, interior courtyards and magnificent indoor swimming pool. This building is a blend of Romanesque and Moorish styles of architecture common to the areas surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.
Julia Morgan was the first woman to graduate from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in civil engineering, the first woman accepted in architecture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and the first licensed female architect in California. In addition to the City Club, Morgan designed Hearst Castle at San Simeon and more than 700 other structures, many of which are California landmarks.
