Our research improves lives, enhances places, and contributes to the common good.

 

At Perkins+Will, research is part of our DNA.

We’re creators and curators of intelligence. By constantly asking questions—by pushing the boundaries to know more—we stay on the cutting edge. Whether it’s understanding how buildings affect the human experience, discovering the latest energy efficiency strategies, or finding the most innovative and healthy building materials and technologies, our research allows us to design smarter, more competitive built environments—for you.

In collaboration with academics and other experts, our ten research labs are at the forefront of architectural inquiry. And we’re excited to introduce you to each of them, here. You’ll see how the intelligence we’re cultivating ensures you’re getting the most informed, meaningful, customized design solutions possible.

We hope to inspire you to call on us as a trusted source of intelligence, and to join us on our research journey. So go ahead—say “hi.” Ask us questions. Share your ideas. Through dialogue, we can innovate real-life design solutions that will ensure better buildings, places, cities, and systems in 2016 and beyond.

Beyond the Labs

The larger Research + Knowledge platform at Perkins+Will extends beyond the labs, leveraging a number of other resources that ensure a vibrant ecosystem of intelligence creation, testing, and sharing.
