CATHOLIC MASS

CONCRETE QUARTERLY/ AUTUMN 05 - ROUND UP

Trahan Architects has designed this Holy Rosary Catholic Church for the small community of St Amant near New Orleans in the US. Built on the centenary of the timber original, the parish was looking for a symbol of permanence among piecemeal local development. The group of new concrete buildings is mainly educational, forming three sides of a quadrangle with a freestanding chapel at its heart.

Cantilevered concrete canopies and mass walls help keep temperatures equable.
