Advocate For The Community

Radian | Placematters advocates for a city in which community engagement and empowerment is centered at the heart of the design and planning process. As a community design center, Radian | Placematters provides guidance for individuals, organizations and neighborhoods to actively participate in creating healthier, sustainable and more equitable communities.

Architecture For Impact

Radian | Placematters believes the built environment has a significant and direct impact on the effectiveness of healthy communities. In order to address issues of inequities related to the built environment, our role as both a design resource and active community member amplifies the voices of underserved neighborhoods by promoting active community participation in the architectural design process.

Responsive Design Solutions

Radian | Placematters is a collaborative design group focused on creating healthy and sustainable communities in underserved areas. As a non-profit community design center (501c3), we provide urban design and architectural services to community based initiatives. Radian | Placematters bridges the gap between neighborhood-based projects and the design community by acting as a resource serving all sectors including private organizations, government/municipalities, community and nonprofit groups. Our group focuses on inner-city development in transit oriented neighborhoods and surrounding urban corridors to enhance the health, sustainability and quality of our communities. Radian | Placematters provides support in the following areas: feasibility studies, program development, schematic design, project facilitation, technical assistance, community outreach/ engagement, architectural design and community participatory process.
