TRA TRA STUDIO architecture, PLLC was founded in 1995 by and combines the strengths of Robert Traboscia, an environmental designer and an artist and Caterina Roiatti, an architect educated in France, Italy and the United States. Their collaboration draws from their prior experience in leading projects, varied in type, scale and geographical location and informs TRA’s interdisciplinary project approach and diversified portfolio.
Caterina and Bob met while at Vignelli Associates, with whom they still collaborate, working on of complete identity projects; that experience assists them in designing spaces that are both TRA’s as well as they depict the client’s brand.
