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.
Gabriela CalzadaAssociate AIA
Gabriela first joined the New Orleans office in June 2021. From a young age, she had an interest in various forms of artistic expression which included drawing, photography, and dance. Gabriela’s training in modern and classical ballet helped her form a distinct spatial understanding of movement, rhythm, and balance.
A Puerto Rico native, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design from the University of Puerto Rico before moving to Brooklyn to pursue a Master in Architecture at Pratt Institute. Through her academic work, she has explored issues of climate resilience as well as the intersections between nature and the built environment. Her interests outside architecture include thinking she can play pool like a pro and finding pocket-sized books. She also makes a really good coquito. She is a proud Puerto Rican who hopes to one day use all her acquired knowledge to make a positive impact back home.
