Architects and Designers
New York, NY
2007 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by the Target Corporation.

Benjamin Aranda and Christopher Lasch are the principals of the New York based architecture studio Aranda/Lasch. Graduates of Columbia University, the two young designers founded their practice in 2003. Their work-from the 2003 Brooklyn Pigeon Project to their recent Pamphlet Architecture publication Tooling-is characterized by both rigor and whimsy. Like scientists, they are committed to an exhaustive investigation of structures and systems that will enable them to discover new variations in form and surface that they can transform into architecture.
