RAD Lab is a San Diego based company focusing on cutting edge design and development within both the public and private realm. We seek opportunity by experimenting through flexible urbanism, place making, and challenging settings. Our passion is to explore new methods of construction and design within the urban environment motivated by viewing architecture as a framework for transformation.

At RAD Lab we are not trying to make the impossible possible. What we are trying to do is simple; through tactical urbanism and design development, RAD Lab concentrates on community development to create a sense of place for the surrounding public realm. We also seek out unqiue and comprehensive development opportunities within the commercial and residential projects. 

RAD Lab was founded by a group of three entrepreneurs that graduated with honors from the NewSchool of Architecture + Design. During their thesis year in the Architecture Masters program, they created RAD Lab Designs which stands for Research and Development Laboratory for Design. Philip Auchettl (middle), David Loewenstein (right), and Jason Grauten (left) lead the design team, execute contracts and construction drawings, design, build, and oversee construction and project management.  

RAD Lab has worked on all different types of projects, from furniture design to large developments.
