SWT Design: Sustainable Landscape Architecture

The landscape architects of SWT Design are concerned with the influence of their projects on communities and individuals, on the environment, and on the beauty of outdoor spaces. Their design work includes St. Louis Zoo, Brightside Pocket Park, Cortex Innovation Community Campus, Webster Groves Sculpture Garden, St. John’s Mercy Plaza, and the Muny Plaza. With sustainability and the environment in mind, SWT Design also focuses on how these spaces affect people’s health and work ethic. SWT’s landscape architects create ever-changing, seasonal spaces using native plants and storm water management practices. SWT Design encourages communities and institutions to invest in beautiful, sustainable spaces for people to live, work, and play.

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
