The Sustainable Development Lab (SDLab) is a research and practice laboratory inside the University of Louisiana, Lafayette that integrates design, sustainable development, historic preservation and entrepreneurship in a model of economic development and community engagement. 
As a practice laboratory dedicated to design entrepreneurship, historic preservation, and sustainable development we look to promote research and economic development through density, housing, building science, fabrication and cultural resource management through a number of cross-disciplinary collaborations (co-Labs). 
This work is increasingly done in collaboration with Louisiana Housing Lab (LA Housing Lab), a affordable housing development non-profit (501c3) organized for this purpose.
