In 2007, Trahan Architects was one of only five U.S. firms on Wallpaper Magazine’s list of the world’s 101 best emerging design firms.

Mr. Trahan was one of 22 U.S. architects featured in the book, “Arquitectos Americanos”, published in Barcelona, Spain to recognize the work of America’s most outstanding architects. Trahan’s design of Holy Rosary Church is featured on both the front and back covers of the book and is the only design to earn a spot on the book cover.

Mr. Trahan was elected to the AIA College of Fellows in 2006 at the age of 45 and in 2007 participated in The Architectural League of New York’s 25th Anniversary Emerging Voices Lecture Series, an independent forum that recognizes architects whose work is gaining national and international attention.

He is fluent in all phases of design and construction administration, and has served as principal-in-charge on projects up to $1 billion.
