Uplifting the Poor, 1 Building at a Time

After reading clicking on someone else's article, I got distracted by another article, and another and another, until I came across this one about a man named Michael Maltzan who is building these amazing structures in LA that are built specifically with the poor in mind, amongst others. He provides them with a sense of community, and protection, whilst not feeling outcasted from the rest of the city. A garden off of the kitchen promoted a Garden Club, and a Community Room promoted a Yoga Class. I love that such a big name in architecture is doing this kind of work for people. He has also built a house for artists ;)
