Tina Govan

SOMOS design
Founding Principal
Raleigh, NC
As an architect and mother, Tina has been a strong advocate for creating accessible urban places that are friendly to all ages. She is principal of her own firm in Raleigh, NC, working with collaborative teams of socially-minded designers on projects that connect people to each other and the places they live.

She holds a Master of Architecture from the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, has practiced in a wide range of cultural settings, and works to reveal the hidden potential of overlooked people and places.

She co-founded Raleigh Urban Rangers, which activates public space by inviting residents out to play, meet and fully inhabit their city. Most recently, she organized an urban farmers market and community space, bringing life to a dead parking lot that sat unused in the middle of Raleigh’s downtown.
