The Integrated Design Lab (IDL) is operated by the Department of Architecture in the College of Built Environments at the University of Washington. The lab is a self-sustaining organization that includes interdisciplinary faculty, staff, students, professional collaborators and partner organizations.

IDL’s mission is to discover solutions that overcome the most difficult building performance barriers, and to meet the building industry‚Äôs goals of moving towards radically higher performing buildings and healthy urban environments. We advance our mission through interconnected research, technical assistance, and professional educational and tour programs.
