Research &

Systematic research and innovation projects at SWA create knowledge that reaches beyond any one site to inform designs that help cities, communities, and environments address emerging complexities and face unprecedented challenges. XL Lab is the firm-wide platform for research and innovation at SWA. The lab provides insights into future conditions in the built environment, analysis of site performance, new tools in technology through experimentation, and topical investigations. Lab projects support design teams through tools, metrics, information, and studies. Contact the lab at
