Chicago Architecture Biennial

Terrol Dew Johnson and Chris Lasch interviewed for a Chicago Architecture Biennial article about the upcoming basket exhibit.

“In everything that I try to do on a personal and professional level, I always bring along the idea of cultural revitalization. I always try to work towards opportunities that will benefit the work that I do in the community,” said Johnson. “I’m grateful that Aranda\Lasch understood that I was more than just a basket-weaver and wanted to use this as a tool to educate people who will probably never ever set foot on the reservation where I live.”

Aranda\Lasch quoted for Exhibit Columbus in Architectural Digest:

“Until I visited Columbus I didn’t realize the density of quality architecture in this small town. It feels like an alternate, best possible universe where everyone gets the value of design.” – Benjamin Aranda, cofounder Aranda\Lasch
