Michael Maltzan's work to be celebrated at this year's Los Angeles Forum fundraiser at Inner-City Arts

On Saturday 9 November, the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design (LA Forum) will be hosting its annual fundraiser and celebrating the work of LA-based architect Michael Maltzan, FAIA. ForumFest 2013 will therefore be held at the Inner-City Arts campus in downtown LA, designed by Maltzan and opened in 2008. Tickets are priced at $100 and can be purchased here.

A statement from the LA Forum reads: “The LA Forum has chosen Michael Maltzan as the honoree because he represents the best of what architecture can do today. Now being built all over the globe, the work of his office started with and continues to engage Los Angeles with an urbanistic and social specificity rooted in continually engaging the question of ‘how do we live here.’

“From parks in Playa Vista; to low-income housing in Downtown done in partnership with the Skid Row Housing Trust; to art and museum complexes in urban and suburban conditions alike (including the site of ForumFest 2013, Inner-City Arts, a nonprofit organization near Skid Row that provides free arts education to underprivileged youth), Michael’s work resonates with a focused sophistication and continuous celebration of the power of space, experience, and Southern California light against his dynamic white forms.”
