Experiment. Create. Innovate. Share. Collaborate.

Our work is fueled by knowledge, research and active debate. We advocate new ideas and innovation in design theory and practice.Welcome to our IDEAS blog, a place to explore, share, and document our thinking, work, and current research. We explore several new and long-standing concepts in landscape architecture, planning, and urban design–from the creation of great urban landscapes, urban ecologies, and landscape infrastructure–to the formation of the Bayous systems across the Texas landscape, the rising prominence of urban agriculture, and the overall impact of our work on social well-being.

This blog is the collection of thoughts from our Principals, Associates, and Staff across our seven offices at SWA Group.¬†Join us, we’d love to hear what you think.
