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.

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.
