Building/structure dates: 1913 initial construction
Significance: The La Jolla Woman's Club is one of architect Irving Gill's most noted buildings. Its simplified forms, reflecting the influence of California mission architecture, and use of reinforced concrete are trademarks of Gill's style. The building and grounds were donated to the La Jolla Woman's Club by Ellen Browning Scripps. / The La Jolla Women's Club, designed by Irving John Gill in 1913, reveals the purity of architectural expression achieved at Gill's mature stage. Gill exploited the tilt-slab system of construction by presenting pure rectangular forms punctured by simple arched opening and by placing metal frames for doors and windows in the forms prior to pouring of the concrete. The building form is effectively extended through the use of pergola structures. Vines and other vegetation in the planned gardens provide an articulation which pleasantly contrasts with the simplicity of the building itself.
