ON KCET'S ARTBOUND
Star Apartments and New Carver Apartments were featured in KCET’s Artbound documentary series in March. Produced by Lyra Kilston and building upon her article from 2014 on the same topic, the video focuses on the positive impact design can have within all types of communities. The documentary includes short interviews with Star and Carver residents as well as architect Michael Maltzan, LA Times Architectural Critic Christopher Hawthorne, and Skid Row Housing Trust’s Executive Director Mike Alvidrez. Star Apartments and New Carver Apartments are two of the four projects that MMA and the Skid Row Housing Trust, a non-profit affordable housing group, have collaborated on over the past decade. The fourth project, Crest Apartments, broke ground earlier this month.
