Lloyd Atler

Special guest

Lloyd Alter is design editor of TreeHugger, a prominent media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream. Living in Toronto, Canada, he has been an architect, developer, inventor and prefab promoter.
He contributes to MNN.com, The Guardian, and Azure magazines, and is Adjunct Professor teaching sustainable design at Ryerson University School of Interior Design. In the course of his work developing small residential units and prefabs, Lloyd became convinced that we just use too much of everything- too much space, too much land, too much food, too much fuel, too much money, and that the key to sustainability is to simply use less. And, the key to happily using less is to design things better.
