Los Angeles-based architect Michael Maltzan designs homes, art centers, public housing complexes and landscapes to stimulate and engage users. Whether designed for the privileged or the poor, his buildings are graceful, minimalist and striking. Maltzan began earning recognition as early as his undergraduate days at RISD, when he won the Henry Adams AIA Scholastic Gold Medal. Since then his firm has been widely recognized – including with a 2012 American Academy of Arts & Letters Award – and its projects have been exhibited at major museums worldwide.
