Ethos

Collaboration

As human beings we are part of a larger community. Working collaboratively brings humility and adaptability to our work, it reflects our reality. By combining our core team’s talents with the aptitudes of outside specialists, we expand our knowledge and create frameworks for new kinds of relationships and experiences.

BIM Implementation & Coordination

As specialty design consultants to the cast-stone panel fabricator, Advanced Cast Stone, Case and Method Design working with David Kufferman, P.E., developed and engineered a sophisticated structural steel support system that secures the 1,150 unique stone panels, each with its own set of customized connections. Key to process was the programming environment of Grasshopper, Karamba and Geometry Gym, operated in parallel with Robot structural analysis software and SDS/2 for steel detailing. The end result was a fully detailed (LOD 400) model of every structural member, support and connection used ultimately for fabrication and installation of the steel supports and cast stone connections.

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.
