Framing different points of view

"One is forced to be the object of fascination and fray, while simultaneously judging and monitoring the urban experiment. The rare emotion of being watched while also watching cajoles one to continue to refine and reevaluate his or her perception of the city."
 

- Michael Maltzan, Los Angeles architect

"The city constantly repositions itself at a different acute angle and offers a new data set."

- Michael Maltzan, Los Angeles architect

"The city presented itself to me as a series of colliding events and interactions. Multiple cultures and landscapes emerged through the light of the overexposed horizon in flashes of contradiction: fertile and arid, dark and blinding, restrictive and generous- spaces ripe with inconsistency."

- Michael Maltzan, Los Angeles architect
