In 2023, we moved our goals forward by publishing another vital book, The Sacred Architecture of Irving J. Gill. Rev Dr Mark Hargreaves’s well-researched and thoughtfully written book breaks new ground on Gill scholarship.
As a thank you to Foundation supporters, all donations over $250 will receive a free copy of our premier publications, One California Architect, Irving J. Gill, and, The Sacred Architecture of Irving J. Gill.

Supporting the Irving J. Gill FoundationDodge House 1916

Irving J. Gill was born in 1870. After several years of apprenticeship, he opened his own architectural firm in 1893. In the midst of a brilliant career, the Great Depression stalled his progress in 1929. Then, during the depression, he passed away in 1936 at only 66 years of age.

For too many years following Gill’s death, there had been no formal effort to preserve his legacy. As a result, many magnificent Gill landmarks have been lost, and his name has not found its proper place in architectural history books.

That began to change in 2015 when the Irving J. Gill Foundation was founded. While Gill’s legacy is historic, the Foundation is still a young organization with a lot of work to make up for the lost time.

If you appreciate Gill’s work, the Arts & Crafts, Modern Architecture, American architecture, or the progressive ideals that he believed in and pursued in his architecture, then please consider making a donation to help us make up for that lost time.

All donations are appreciated and will significantly contribute to our core mission of preserving the work and legacy of this important modern American architect.
