The most complete monograph dedicated to the work of Michael Maltzan and his Los Angeles-based architecture practice, this book presents 16 of Maltzan's most recent projects with full-color photographs, drawings, and plans. Maltzan is an architect who deals with the realities of urban landscape through the manipulation of ground, circulation, and perception. Among his best-known projects is MoMA QNS, Maltzan's reworking of a former factory into a temporary accommodation for the Museum of Modern Art, which opened in Queens, New York, in June 2002. Projects currently in design or under construction include several innovative residences in California, the Fresno Metropolitan Museum, and Kidspace Children's Museum, Pasadena, which was selected for the 2002 Venice Biennale International Exhibition of Architecture. Maltzan is quickly gaining increasing international recognition for his work, with projects in China, Canada, and Milan.
