Artistry

A refined structure arises out of a vision—a desire to create something beautiful and meaningful. It finds its form through the careful crafting of each and every detail. Built in this way, a building becomes expressive—it surpasses the sum of its parts. In bringing artistry to our designs, we discover that which does not yet exist.

Collaboration with sculptor Matthias Pliessnig

During the design phase for the Alliance Theatre Transformation, Trahan embarked on an artistic collaboration with renowned sculptor Matthias Pliessnig. This process elevated the shaping and tectonics of the chamber and lobby. The steam bending process perfected by Matthias allowed the architect to combine the precise digital modeling required by the acoustician, with the craftsmanship and beauty of the design vision. This collaborative process produced acoustically tuned forms that amplifies the artistry performed on the stage.

Cast Bronze by Max DeMoss

Throughout his career, DeMoss’s work has echoed his early affinity for the Classical aesthetic. Often using the fragmented form, DeMoss’ subject matter ranges from the figure to Biblical allegory, from abstract to narrative. For St. Jean Vianney Church, DeMoss created bronze elements that are highly personal and site specific. The doors that grace the entry way are created from objects parishioners pressed into the form work on site. As the doors age they have become a living time capsule marking the spiritual threshold.
