California architect Julie Eizenberg will give the Thomas Jefferson Professor Lecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture on Monday, April 4 at 5 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153. 

Eizenberg is the Thomas Jefferson Professor at the School of Architecture for the spring semester, where she is working with students on thesis projects and will be leading a workshop on housing and design for all students in architecture and landscape architecture in April.

Eizenberg is founding principal of Koning Eizenberg Architecture in Santa Monica, Calif. The firm pioneered — and continues to practice — socially conscious architectural design with emphasis on projects that include tight budget affordable multiunit housing, community buildings, recreation centers, schools, homes, hotels, stores and work spaces. 

The firm’s groundbreaking work has garnered numerous awards, including a 2004 Residential Architect Magazine Leadership Award for Firm of the Year, the Westside Urban Forum’s Westside Prize in 2004 for the Herb Alpert Educational Village, Urban Land Institute 2003 Award for Excellence and LA Business Council Architectural Award 2004 for the expansion of Los Angeles’ historic Farmers Market. Two recent national competitions — Chicago Public School Northside and the Pittsburg Children’s Museum, a sustainable project that utilizes the U. S. Green Building Councils LEED Building Rating System — were won under Eizenberg’s direction at KEA. Also, Julie Eizenberg was honored in May 2004 by the Cityof West Hollywood and the Association of Women in Architecture at the Plummer Park Community Center commending her accomplishments and contributions to architecture and the community.

Eizenberg received degrees in architecture from the University of Melbourne, Australia and the University of California in Los Angeles.
