Agriculturally Blended Architecture

The Acadia Parish Conference Center displays a divine balance between complementing its setting and asserting its own presence. From certain perspectives it seems to disappear into the rice paddies behind it, but from others it rises from the earth in monumental masses.

The city of Crowley, Louisiana, relies heavily on its rural setting and the yield of its many fields. The site with which Trahan Architects is working is nestled between a residential neighborhood and the vast agricultural landscape. It becomes the perfect programmatic and architectural threshold between the two interconnected realms.

Three great rectangular structures stretch across their setting with expansive green roofs to reference the adjacent pastures. The Acadia Parish Conference Center houses a number of civic functions including an education center for the community.
