What can I say, I like the background, photo by Bonnie Alter

LivePlayWork is a failed project by Lloyd Alter, but is now a repository of stuff I write and find interesting.  I am Design editor of TreeHugger.com.  Also adjunct professor teaching sustainable design at Ryerson University School of Interior Design, and  a past president of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario because I care a lot about old buildings.  I writesbook reviews for Corporate Knights magazine and contribute to the Mother Nature Network, Azure and the Guardian. I am writing a book on the history of the bathroom; you can see the general idea here in the Guardian.

  1. I Read your 60 people transportation article. With autonomous cars there will be even more cars on the road. There will be the 60 people in cars plus even more extra empty cars out running errands or avoiding parking for their owners.

  2. Hi Lloyd,

    I am a sole proprietor licensed Architect in Toronto. I think I have met you at the Eco-Fair at the Green Barn in Ward 21 more than a few years ago now. I have designed a Demount-able and Stack-able Wooden Rain-barrel Stand for 2′-0″ wide Rain-barrel Cisterns.

    I think LEAF and Treemobile of Toronto will help me advertise this design.

    Here is the link to the info and purchasing the barrel stand:


    Thanks for your attention.
    Lowell Lo
