Trahan Architects is a global architecture firm based in New Orleans with design studios in New York City and Chicago, founded by philanthropist Victor F. “Trey” Trahan III, FAIA.

The ARCHITECT 50 tries to answer one simple question: “Who had the best year?”

Quoting “Transforming complex conceptual ideas into realized physical spaces is no simple task, but Trahan Architects excels at this alchemy.” When asked about the accolade and his perception of architecture Trahan said “It’s beyond buildings, right? It’s about arriving at a place where you believe that architecture can create or result in an attitude of kindness…. architecture has a voice in that.”

Trahan was the architect for the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum n Natchitoches. The museum opened in June of 2013.
