Swayn Open Research

The Alastair Swayn Foundation is committed to information sharing and transparency of research the research it funds. We believe that research supported by the Foundation should be made discoverable and readily accessible online. The Swayn Open Research repository provides a place for researchers to promptly have their findings published on an open access basis, to benefit the architecture and design community.
