Aranda\Lasch is a New York-based design studio dedicated to experimental research and innovative building. Established in 2003 by Benjamin Aranda and Chris Lasch, the studio designs buildings, installations, furniture and objects through a deep investigation of materials and structure. They have been winners of the United States Artists Award and Young Architects + Designers Award in 2007, the Architectural Record Design Vanguard Award in 2014, the Architectural League Emerging Voices Award in 2015, and were named one of Architectural Digest’s 2014 AD Innovators. Their early projects are the subject of the book, Pamphlet Architecture #27: Tooling. Aranda\Lasch has exhibited their work internationally in galleries and institutions dealing with design and architecture. In 2008 they were commissioned by the MoMA in New York to produce a large-scale installation in the museum. They collaborated with Matthew Ritchie on The Morning Line on a work commissioned by TBA-21 that has travelled to Venice, Seville, Vienna and Karlsruhe. In addition to commercial and residential projects in New York, they completed 42,000 square foot temporary structures for Design Miami in 2008 and 2009. They were featured in both recent 2008 and 2010 Venice Architecture Biennials. Current projects include three retail and civic buildings in Miami, Florida, a banquet hall and outdoor theater in Libreville, Gabon, and an arts center with an outdoor sculpture park, museum, library and artist residences in Bali, Indonesia. Aranda\Lasch continually develops experimental furniture products that explore new concepts in fabrication and assembly and are represented by the Johnson Trading Gallery in New York and Gallery ALL in Los Angeles and Beijing.
