Endowment Funds

Julius Shulman Institute Endowment

Woodbury University students studying architectural photography at the Julius Shulman Institute (JSI).The Julius Shulman Institute (JSI) is a programming and research unit housed in the School of Architecture at Woodbury University. Julius Shulman was one of the world’s most significant architectural photographers. His work helped to introduce modern architecture, and particularly the work of dozens of renowned Southern California-based architects to a broad populace. His archive, now housed at the Getty Research Institute, provides an unparalleled window into Los Angeles’ mid-twentieth century built history. Shulman established the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University in 2005 with the goal of promoting an appreciation and understanding of the built environment, particularly as mediated by photography, to aspiring students of design and architecture and to the general public.

Your gift helps support JSI public programming and student activities that promotes photography as a means to understand and appreciate the cultural value and significance of the discipline of architecture from interior architecture to landscape architecture and urban design.
