    new orleans LOUISIANA

    The Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame in historic Natchitoches, Louisiana merges two contrasting collections formerly housed in a university coliseum and a nineteenth century courthouse, elevating the visitor experience for both. Set in the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase on the banks of the Cane River Lake, the design mediates the dialogue between sports and history, past and future, container and contained.

  • Acadia Parish Conference Center
    crowley LOUISIANA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Trahan Architects: Located to the north-east of Crowley, the site lies between the urban/residential development to the west and the rural/agricultural development to the east. The design seeks to mediate this threshold and express the importance of the local agricultural development to place. Rice is the primary economy in the Parish and city of Crowley. Rice fields create a beautiful mosaic that blanket the landscape. Contours follow the natural topography, control water run-off and delineate rice paddies. As technology has advanced the rice fields have evolved from a more fluid configuration to a more orthogonal configuration. This results in a more efficient layout and maximizes the yield.

  • River Center Library
    baton rouge LOUISIANA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Trahan Architects: The Baton Rouge River Center, formerly called the Riverside Centroplex is comprised of five main facilities: the Arena, the Exhibition Hall, the Ballroom, Theater for Performing Arts and the River Center Library. Designed by John Desmond, the Riverside Centroplex was conceived as a chain of buildings that would create a framework around the Old State Capitol. These buildings share a similar aesthetic that is both simple and stark, allowing one to appreciate the significance of the Old State Capitol. With closest proximity, the existing River Center Library frames the Old State Capitol with its interior atrium. Built in the 1970’s, the library carries with it many of that era’s unfavorable traits in it design, particularly an introverted monumentality that fails to effectively connect to the urban context.
