Trahan Part of Architecture and Planning Fall 2021 Lecture Series
Trahan Architects is a global architecture firm founded on the belief that the mindful design of everyday spaces can elevate human experience. Trahan Architects considers each project as part of a unique ecosystem. They use the tools of architecture practice — artistic expression, technical innovation, and the mindful selection of materials — in search for designs that are socially impactful, sincerely sustainable, and aesthetically sublime. Notable projects include the Holy Rosary Complex in Louisiana; Coca-Cola Stage at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta; Caesars Superdome (formerly known as the Mercedes Benz Superdome) in New Orleans; and conservation and preservation undertakings in St. Francisville, La., and in Corcovado National Park in Patagonia, Chile.
As the Walton Critic, Trahan will direct a design studio considering the interaction between built environment, peacemaking, and (social, racial, economic, and environmental) justice. He will participate in an open lecture, titled Peace Architecture: Designing for healing and Connection, Monday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m. He will teach, review, and meet with students and faculty.
Trahan’s talk is part of the school’s annual lecture series, running Sept. 13 to Nov. 1 in the Edward M. Crough Center, Koubek Auditorium.

The visit of architect Trey Trahan is made possible by the Clarence Walton Fund for Catholic Architecture. The lecture series offers students, faculty, and the community a chance to meet, discuss, and work with prominent architects and industry leaders.
