Urban Radicals is a collaborative studio that designs objects, rooms, architectures and landscapes.

U R started out in 2019 as a duo between architects Era Savvides and Nasios Varnavas, and is now an expansive network between friends, colleagues and expert collaborators, solving design problems across contexts and scales.

U R was selected to curate and design the Cyprus Pavilion National Participation at the 17th Architecture Biennale in Venice 2021, and has been named as one of the Best New Architecture Practices for 2021 by Archdaily, as well as being selected to be one of six Young Architects in Residence at the Architecture Foundation London for 2021-22.

The studio has worked for notable clients which include the Cyprus Architects Association and Ministry of Culture, Cheapside Business Alliance, European Cultural Centre, Exhibition Road Culture Group - Discover South Kensington Festival, Goethe-Institut London, La Biennale di Venezia, London Festival of Architecture, New London Architecture, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Royal Docks - London Borough of Newham and Poliform.

More recently, U R has been awarded a material research grant, from AKTII/ Tyrens Group engineers, to develop a net-zero carbon brick suitable for construction, which feautures as a public pavilion at the ECC 2023 biennial exhibition at the Giardini della Marinaressa in Venice, and runs in parallel to the 18th Venice Architecture Biennale.

Additional to practice, U R teaches architectural design at UCL for the MArch Architecture Part 2 programme and at Westminster for the BA(Hons)Architecture.
