									                                                                                                 Michael Maltzan, AIA

Michael Maltzan was born in Levittown, on Long Island, New York. He holds both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of
Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he received the Henry Adams/American Institute of Architects
Gold Medal. He received his Master of Architecture degree with a Letter of Distinction from Harvard University in 1987.

Since establishing Michael Maltzan Architecture (MMA) in 1995, Michael Maltzan has been responsible for the design of a
range of arts, educational, commercial, and residential projects, including Harvard-Westlake School’s Feldman/Horn Center
for the Arts, the UCLA Hammer Museum, MoMA QNS in Long Island City, and Pavilion No. 16 in Jinhua, China. Current projects
being developed include the Administration and Education Complex at JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), the Fresno
Metropolitan Museum, and a 410-unit residential complex stretching one-half-mile along the Los Angeles River. The office
won the competition for the Biblioteca degli Alberi at the Giardini di Porta Nuova in Milan along with team members Petra
Blaisse from Amsterdam and Mirko Zardini of Milan. The firm was also selected, along with Archea of Florence, in the
competition for the Pirelli RE Offices in Milan.

The firm’s work has been featured in a number of publications including Architecture, Architectural Digest, Architectural
Record, Artforum, A+U, Domus, Blueprint, GA Houses, Lotus, The Plan, Phaidon Press 10x10, Newsweek, The New York Times,
Los Angeles Times, and Wallpaper Magazine. The Hergott-Shepard residence was included in the “Unprivate House” exhibit
at the Museum of Modern Art, followed by an international tour that included the MAK Center in Vienna, the Walker Art Center
in Minneapolis, and the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. The Kidspace Museum was exhibited at the 8th International
Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2002 and the Leona Drive Residence was included in the Cooper-Hewitt
National Design Museum’s Extreme Textiles exhibit in 2005. The firm’s work has also been exhibited at the Harvard Graduate
School of Design and the Milan Salone Internazionale Del Mobile. The book “Alternate Ground” was published to accompany
the firm’s first monographic exhibition at the Heinz Architectural Center/Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh in 2005.

Mr. Maltzan has served as a design instructor, lecturer, and visiting critic at The Architectural League of New York, Harvard
University, Rhode Island School of Design, the Southern California Institute of Architecture, UCLA, UC Berkeley, University of
Southern California, and the University of Waterloo. His work has won numerous design awards. He is a licensed architect
and a member of the American Institute of Architects.
