bild design is an assembly of independent architects, designers and fabricators each with their own portfolio of experience and talent that come together to collaborate on built form. bild design was founded in 1998 by new orleans native byron mouton, an established architect, designer, and craftsman.
bild projects are a combination of ideas and explorations that focus on ground: how form receives and reacts to its context and surrounds; space: ways to configure and construct layered spatial experiences; and assembly: means and methods for joining various parts.
recent bild work includes a variety of new constructions and renovations, residential and commercial projects that often investigate an approach towards regional remediation. this work represents pre-hurricane katrina concerns related to domestic vertical growth, the relationship of the occupant to the ground, and post-storm responses to extended contextual relationships with the water. to varying degree, each project is influenced by and aims to address the needs of a culture struggling with issues of decay, economic shortage, and preservation within a framework of issues related to salvage, integration and progress.
