Keynote Presenter - Trey Trahan, FAIA

Victor F. “Trey” Trahan, III, FAIA, is Founder and CEO of Trahan Architects. With a strong personal belief in the value of conservation and philanthropy, his life and work is guided by a commitment to the development of sustainable environments.  A Louisiana native, Trey grew up in the small town of Crowley—a community known for its entrepreneurial spirit. Trey founded Trahan Architects at the age of thirty two, and the firm has since designed a series of local and international projects that have received recognition for their innovative use of materials.

Trey’s architectural projects include the Louisiana State Museum in Natchitoches, which won a 2015 National AIA Honor Award for Interior Architecture, and Architect Magazine’s Annual Design Review Award; and was named 2013 Top Architecture Project by Azure and 2013 Best of the Year by Interior Design magazines. He has won multiple design competitions in China, including a 4 million square foot mixed-use development in Zhengzhou, named by Forbes Magazine as one of the seven most important hospitality projects of the future.

Trey has taught graduate classes at both MIT (2013) and USC (2015). He is a member of the global advisory board for the Van Allen Institute in New York, an organization that explores how design can transform cities and landscapes to improve people’s lives. He is also a board member of The Cultural Landscape Foundation in Washington D.C., a non-profit that educates and engages the public in our shared historical landscapes.  Trey spends his time between New Orleans, New York and Patagonia Chile, where he recently purchased, and is in the process of conserving, a property in the Corcovado National Park, one of the eleven national parks established by North Face founder Douglas Tompkins. He is working to return this property to its pristine natural state, while enjoying his time in this remote landscape.


Seminar Presenter - Michael Riscica, CSI, AIA

Michael Riscica, CSI, AIA is the Founder of the Young Architect Blog which he uses to benefit aspiring architects to be more successful in their personal, academic and professional careers by sharing what he experienced to become a Licensed Architect with the many successes and failures along the way.  He is one of the most well known advocates for young professionals in the architecture and construction industries.  Among the many of blog posts he’s written for, Michael is also the author of How to Pass the ARE. As opposed to being just another study guide, his book outlines tactics and strategies on the exam process including preparation, attitude and how to overcome fears and failure.  Michael also hosts a reoccurring virtual ARE study group named ARE Boot Camp.  Similar to a design studio, The ARE Boot Camp offers a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with, and accountability.  Michael has also presented at CSI CONSTRUCT and the AIA National Conference on Architecture, among many other conferences.  Michael is also the host of the Young Architect Podcast, which follows in the same vein of the Young Architect blog. 

Currently, Michael is beginning his Tour across the country. The Memphis Chapter of CSI is proud to to play host while he makes his stop in the Bluff City.
