Arlinda Lalaj Branko received a degree in Architecture from Pratt Institute. She focuses on the whole field of design working from architecture to interior, to furniture and graphics. Arlinda grew up near the historical 588 BC town of Apollonia, situated in modern-day Albania. She studied Architecture at Universitá degli Studi di Firenze in Italy where her interests identified with “From the Spoon to the City”—a movement born from architect’s desire to design both buildings and their contents.
After graduating with distinction from Pratt she continued with a year of studies in Graphic Design at Cooper Union. Arlinda has gained experience in both Architecture and Design while working for NBBJ, 2x4, and Nordstrom. Parallel to that she leads a collaborative practice focused on sculptural geometries and advanced fabrication as applied to furniture and accessories. Her desire is to create designs and spaces that advance typologies and are in harmony with the environment.
