On February 26, 2016, the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design hosted Standard of Dwelling — a symposium about housing in Toronto.

Los Angeles-based architect Michael Maltzan — whose awarding-winning work has included multi-family, single-family, affordable, and transitional housing — presented the keynote lecture, providing, through an exploration of his work in Los Angeles, an outside perspective on the Toronto-focused discussion.

Michael Maltzan founded the Los Angeles-based architecture and urban design practice Michael Maltzan Architecture, Inc. in 1995. Dedicated to the design and construction of projects that engage their context and community, the firm is committed to the creation of progressive, transformative experiences that chart new trajectories for architecture, urbanism, and the public realm. The practice has been recognized with five Progressive Architecture awards, 35 citations from the American Institute of Architects, the Rudy Bruner Foundation’s Gold Medal for Urban Excellence, and as a finalist for the Smithsonian/Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s National Design Award. Maltzan’s designs have been published and exhibited internationally and he regularly teaches and lectures at architectural schools around the world.
