Alan Aranoff daydreamed and doodled away his grade-school years at Emek Hebrew Academy, the Orthodox day school his parents helped found in the San Fernando Valley of California.
“I didn’t understand the point of going to school. I loved climbing, exploring and creating tunnels and treehouses,” says Aranoff, who later helped design some of the most spectacular spaces in Israel, including Jerusalem’s Supreme Court and Teddy Park. “I didn’t really study until eighth grade when they started scaring us about college admissions.”

It was at UCLA that he discovered architecture as a way to utilize his innate talents. Once he was exposed to the work of iconic architects such as Gaudi, Wright and Le Corbusier, he recalls, “There was no turning back.”
