Remembering Wayne J. Troyer, FAIA

Our thoughts are with studioWTA as we remember the life and legacy of their founder, Wayne Troyer, FAIA (1953-2019).

We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of New Orleans’ most influential architects, but are encouraged by the legacy he has left behind for the next generation of architects and designers in our city.

PREMIERE LUMIERE: NOAF + WIA’s Inaugural Beaux Arts Ball

The New Orleans Architecture Foundation (NOAF) + Women In Architecture (WIA) invite you to support PREMIÉRE LUMIÉRE – an Inaugural Beaux Arts Ball on

Saturday, May 11th

Patron Party from 6:00 to 7:00 pm

Main Event from 7:00 to 10:00 pm

At the Music Box Village

The first of its kind in New Orleans, this enchanting event will be an annual avant-garde and euphoric evening full of spirit, ephemeral mysticism, and exploration. A celebration of our eclectic community, embracing the arts, architecture, culture, and music. An unforgettable experience for all, establishing the New Orleans Architecture Foundation (NOAF) as the face of architecture in this city. This event, in all its creativity and glory as a fun evening in a great space with a diverse group of attendees, is intended to raise critical funds to support the programming the NOAF and WIA provide throughout the year.

More than 250 guests, donned in their finest costumery, will delight in a dance-filled evening while enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar and live music in the Music Box Village – one of the most eccentric and unique contemporary art sites in New Orleans – an architectural conglomeration of recycled wood, metal and glass, an open-air performance space tucked under an oak tree canopy and a world away from the ordinary.
