About the Lab

We use both physical and digital analysis tools in our lab.


At the beginning of 2009, Integrated Design Lab - Bozeman moved to a new location on Montana State University's Bozeman campus.  Our new lab facilities provide us with more space to accomodate our many analysis tools.

We spend most of our time performing digital analysis using such programs as AGI-32, eQUEST, and Ecotect.

Our overcast sky simulator and heliodon help us analyze the daylight performance of architectural spaces using physical models.
