Quilian (pronounced Killian) is a designer, writer, and educator working out of Brooklyn and Queens, New York. Quilian founded DSGN AGNC and is its principal. Quilian works with trans-disciplinary teams to research and design proposals that address the complex interactions of social, political, economic and spatial urban processes. This methodology seeks to address issues that negatively affect marginal communities with comprehensive research that can be used to propose a variety of targeted policies, actions, architectures and designs at various scales — from pamphlets to buildings to landscapes.
