Julia Morgan, American Architect - JSTOR Daily

The architecture of Julia Morgan is inseparable from the built environment of California. A prolific designer, her work helped define what Californian architecture was and continues to be. More than 700 of her designs were built during her 46-year career as a licensed architect. Her best-known work, Hearst Castle, designed for the media mogul William Randolph Hearst Sr., exhibits the wealth that many have sought in the state, whether during the Gold Rush of the mid-1800s or in today’s Silicon Valley. Morgan’s designs for Mills College in Oakland helped create a specifically Californian architectural vocabulary for a college that needed to develop its own identity between the competing worlds of the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University. But overall, Morgan’s career was shaped by a legacy of “firsts” and by her own understanding of how a woman architect needed to perform in a male-dominated field.

The Art of Becoming a Better Listener — Tactical Advice for the Startup Setting | First Round Review [Shared]

If you haven’t made a resolution for 2022 (or 2023) yet (or you’ve already fallen off the bandwagon for the one you did select), it’s not too late to reset and reaffirm your intentions for the remaining 11 months of the year. But if typical goals like reading more or spending less time on social media are leaving you uninspired, you might be looking for something different to shake things up.

Ximena Vengoechea recommends one that’s probably not on too many resolution lists: Striving to become a better listener.

I hid a $5,000 camera rig in Brooklyn via The Verge

When I think of wildlife photography, I think of powerful animals photographed using long lenses in epic environments. That was until I met ex-ventriloquist-turned-wildlife-conservation-photographer Carla Rhodes. She has captured over 25 different species of wild animals in the backyard of her Catskills home, and most of the time, she isn’t even there to hit the shutter button.
