One of the US practices I’ve been looking forward to meet has been Trahan Architects. Based in Louisiana, the firm has been very involved in institutional projects for the local community (such as the Holy Rosary Church Complex and the Baton Rouge Library), universities and also in Make It Right.
I find that their involvement with the community, the embracement of new technologies in architecture result in what I feel that “american architecture” is (or should be).
But since traveling to Louisiana wasn´t on my plans, at least in the near future, I had no chance to personally meet Victor “Trey” Trahan (FAIA), principal at Trahan Architects. But thanks to some coincidences, I was able to meet him briefly between connecting flights and do this interview.
Hope you like it as much as I did.
As usual, find the HD version of the interview at Vimeo.
