Radian is a nonprofit architecture and urban design group advancing social equity by redefining how places are designed and built.

Radian exists to advocate, design and build. We are passionate about designing vibrant spaces, and implementing a new way of design that promotes empowerment and inclusivity among communities. We believe that space matters and that by helping communities amplify their voices, community organizations and other nonprofits use their built environment more efficiently and effectively.

Through architecture, urban planning and community engagement, our organization executes strategic planning to lessen the barrier for residents to access healthy food, high quality education, attainable housing and overall increase social equity. By making architecture and design inclusive and accessible to underserved communities, we create an avenue for change and growth that transcends the built environment, and results in a more holistic community fabric.

We use innovative design strategies to elevate and respond to the voices of underserved communities. We co-create programs, tools and policy recommendations to mitigate involuntary displacement through the built environment to ensure socially equitable growth.


We work to identify gaps in services that can be solved through architecture & design. We conduct needs assessments with community leaders, members and organizations in order to develop a community-based design process to determine creative planning solutions.


We increase affordable opportunities for people of all backgrounds. We are streamlining the development process by: identifying land opportunities, solidifying partnerships, leveraging non-traditional capital, and scaling community benefit throughout the state.
