Michael Maltzan Wins Another Award

New, 5 comments

2009-06-icaMichael Maltzan is the proving himself to be the Michael Phelps of architecture. His Inner-City Arts project downtown near Skid Row, an arts education center, was recently awarded the Gold Medal Award for Urban Excellence by the Rudy Bruner Foundation. The award comes "with a $50,000 prize that will go toward arts instruction programs for ICA students." The ICA complex offers classes in the arts to students from a number of public schools, allowing them to interact with professional artists in a studio environment. It serves up to 16,000 at-risk students per year at no cost to the student. The project has been ongoing since 1993, with the third and final phase completed last fall, adding a library, learning center, 99-seat theater and more administrative space.
