People

Bringing together a diverse pool of talent around a single shared table, our company is built on an 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

Brandon Lawry
Associate AIA, NOMA
Designer

Brandon, a native of New Orleans and an alum of the University of Texas at Austin, holds degrees in Architecture and Architectural Engineering. He joined Trahan Architects’ New York studio in October 2023, bringing with him a wealth of experience garnered from prominent global architecture practices. During his tenure at the University of Texas, Brandon studied abroad at the University of Cape Town, completed a Residency in Switzerland, and participated in Public Interest Design with the Gulf Coast Design Lab in Galveston, TX.

Brandon’s professional journey is distinguished by a deep commitment to projects rooted in cultural, justice, preservation, and historical contexts. This background has influenced his design philosophy, wherein he regards architecture as a vital force for social progress and healing. He is deeply intrigued by the psychological and physiological influence of architecture. In his approach to every project, Brandon meticulously considers history, context, and materiality. These intellectual pursuits drive his creative endeavors in photography, material studies, sketching, and research.
