Emerging Voices 2015
Benjamin Aranda and Chris Lasch
New York and Tucson

Benjamin Aranda and Chris Lasch founded New York- and Tucson-based Aranda\Lasch in 2003. Blending history and storytelling (“reaching backward as a way to move forward”) with design driven by computation and algorithm, the pair’s interest in fractals and quasicrystals is evident in projects that often grow from one repeating module or form. Past projects include significant installations, sculpture, and furniture; a recent shift to larger scale work includes the Art Deco Project, a new retail building in Miami’s Design District, as well as large-scale retail and mixed-use developments in Niigata, Japan, Wuxi, China, and Libreville, Gabon. A passion for geometry and logic is visible in all of the firm’s work.
