Exhibition: Michael Maltzan Architects

By Dongyue Zhang | Apr 18, 2016

IMG_5345An exhibition of the work of alumnus-led architecture practice Michael Maltzan Architects, Inc just launched in our Bayard Ewing Buidling Gallery. The gallery team along with numbers of student volunteers worked really hard on the installation of the exhibition over the weekend to make this happen. Michael Maltzan will deliver the 2016 Shoemaker Lecture tonight at Chace Center. The exhibition design is inspired by the office’s own design, Pittman Dowel Residence, involving a series of intersecting lines that organize the space. Audiences will be guided through theses spaces that embody snapshots of selected projects increasing in the projects’ scale. The exhibition creates a micro cosmos of a city with the office’s own work. The lecture tonight unfolds with the design of the PIttman Dowel Residence.

Maltzan founded Michael Maltzan Architecture, Inc. in 1995.  Through a deep belief in architecture’s role in our cities and landscapes, he has succeeded in creating new cultural and social connections across a range of scales and programs.

Michael received a Master of Architecture degree with a Letter of Distinction from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and 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 AIA Gold Medal.  His designs have been published and exhibited internationally and he regularly teaches and lectures at architectural schools around the world. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and a recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award.
