Meet the Architects Thom Mayne & Michael Maltzan, Not the Architecture on January 20th

After accomplishing multiple successful series over the last half, a decade around the world, Architects, not Architecture is back with yet another global world tour. Owing to the recent travel restrictions, Architects, not Architecture is celebrating its 5-year anniversary, with a Virtual event series inviting noteworthy architects to their stage.

Founded by Fermín Tribaldos and Irene Osei-Poku, In Hamburg. The focus of the initiative is to foreground the ‘Architects’, their path, their story, and experiences that are often foreshadowed behind award-winning projects, the ‘Architecture’. Speaking about this unspoken journey in the realm of architecture, allows the audience to see, understand, and connect the intellectual creative mind with the outcome of their work that remains implicit.  

Over the years, the positive impact of this inspirational initiative quickly gained momentum, and the event soon expanded to various cities and countries. In the past year of 2019, ANA has held eleven successful events and has had over 10,000 attendees across the combined 34 events.

On Wednesday, January 20th, 2021, for the 6th event of the 2020-2021 series, happening until April 2021, ANA is touring the city of Los Angles. Thom Mayne, principal architect of the LA-based firm Morphosis Architects and Michael Maltzan, principal architect of Michael Maltzan Architecture shall be taking over the Virtual World Tour stage at the ANA| Los Angeles Edition. The two remarkable American architects shall be sharing their personal biography, crucial creative periods, and their journey leading to the realm of architecture.
