Michael Maltzan: Alternate Ground is the first monographic publication dedicated to the work of Michael Maltzan and his Los Angeles–based practice, Michael Maltzan Architecture. From hillside houses in Los Angeles to MoMA QNS, Long Island City, to a parkland pavilion in Jinhua, China, Maltzan’s designs are animated and shaped by the movement of people through communal spaces, and communicate the relationship of external form to the landscape. Includes essays by curator Raymund Ryan, urban planner Mirko Zardini, and artist Ai Weiwei, and features 16 recent projects represented by full-color photographs, sectional views, models, renderings, and drawings.
Accompanied exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art’s Heinz Architectural Center, February 12 to June 12, 2005.
