Bringing together a diverse pool of talent around a single shared table, our company is built on open, ongoing conversation. Founded in 1992 by Trey Trahan, the firm is intimate in size but broad in its scope.  We engage in a collective questioning of how our process and work can contribute to the health of our ecologies, cities and economies. Each member of the Trahan team is an integral part of a collaborative process that enriches our company culture and improves the quality of our work.

Ethos: Collaboration

Conner Bryan

“Today we must ask ourselves: ‘How do we do more with much less?’.”

A native of Navarre, Florida, Conner Bryan has worked at Trahan Architects since 2014. His experience includes cultural and educational spaces, hospitality and commercial projects, convention and event centers, and master planning. Conner maintains a firm belief in design that provides smart and adaptive responses to human degradation on the environment.

In his past experience at Allied Works Architecture, Conner worked on the acclaimed net-zero Sokol Blosser Wine Tasting Room – the first winery in the United States to pursue the Living Building Challenge certification. During his graduate studies, Conner worked at the University of Texas at Austin Center for Sustainable Development, serving as graduate research associate for the university’s Public Interest Design/Build Program for three years. While at UT Austin, he also won a Design Excellence Award as well as the Blake Alexander and Richard Clark Traveling Student Fellowships with which he travelled to Europe to study and document new forms of advanced timber construction, craft and technologies.
