2014 Young Architects Award
Thomas Bradley Benjamin, AIA | Notes of Interest
Brad is a passionate advocate for the personal growth and professional development of others and is committed to community and professional service through the AIA. He represents the future of the architecture profession and positively influences others to share his passion and collaborative spirit.
He has been active in the AIA since joining AIA Greenville while still an undergraduate at Clemson University in 1995. He has held numerous leadership positions in his local, state, and regional component, where he has consistently been a champion for emerging professionals. As a result of these efforts, the AIA honored him with its 2007 Associate Member of the Year Award. When he was recognized with an AIA South Carolina presidential citation in 2008, the citation noted that he was the youngest chapter member ever to receive the honor. As president of AIA Greenville in 2009, Brad helped establish several new outreach programs, including a local Architecture for Humanity chapter, a Women in Architecture chapter, and an emerging professionals mentoring initiative, titled ArchiLamp, for which he served as a mentor.
Building Design + Construction magazine selected Brad for its prestigious “40 Under 40” class of 2012. This annual list honors emerging leaders in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries. He founded Radium Architecture Inc., in Greenvile, SC, in 2011. The firm is the first in Greenville to support Public Architecture’s 1% program, which challenges architecture firms to pledge 1 percent of their yearly billable hours to pro bono work for community nonprofits.
