Benjamin Aranda (1973) and Christopher Lasch (1972) are both graduates from Columbia University. In 2003 the two designers founded their practice in New York, a studio dedicated to experimental research and innovative building to envision new opportunities and possibilities in the field of design. Their work is generated through an elaborate computational process and is focused on exploring the relationship between structure and space. They constantly search for patterns present in the natural world and new points of view to transfer to their works.
Aranda and Lasch won in 2007 the "United States Artists Award" and the "Young Architects Award". They have been commissioned works by the MoMA in New York and collaborated with Matthew Ritchie for the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary.
