About Me

Hello friends and welcome! I’m Liza. Here are a few little things that make me, well, me: I like cupcakes, building forts, the soothing power of the ocean, traveling, polaroid photography, treehouses, modern art, chandeliers, spring flowers and farmer’s markets. And I truly believe that design has the power to change the world.

I am most fascinated by the intersection of art, architecture and urban planning and constantly think about how we can create more resilient and sustainable places to live.

The way we live has to become more environmentally sustainable, but that doesn’t have to be ugly or bland, or even beige. It can be bright and intelligent. We need to innovate and create to build a healthier, happier planet. I started this blog to tell some of the stories about the people, places, innovations and trends that are leading the way.  I hope you’ll find a little bit of inspiration and learn something new!

Read, enjoy, comment.

Cheers!

-Liza

    You have my attention, Lisa. I’m in Alaska, LEED AP, too. I love architeture, ocean, sunlight, traveling, treehouses, modern art, flowers and farmer’s markets, too. The others (chandelier, cupcakes, tea, etc.) I like but don’t consider love objects. I scan blogs, don’t usually comment but I’m procrasting. I’m in the “green jobs” business: work as an end use energy specialist, renewable energy administrator and I’ve got 4 long presentations to put together. Good luck, all the best. I may come back. I appreciate your likes.

    “because I believe that good, creative design will make the world a better place”…I love this quote of your.

    I love this quote and I so agree…… ‘The way we live has to become more environmentally sustainable, but that doesn’t have to be ugly or bland, or even beige.’

    P.S. I work for your Dad…..

    Hi Lisa,
    I like your blog and I like tea. I have a blog “pot of sustainabiliTEA” although I am not a bloger.
    Royal Roads University, where I go to school, just built a LEED gold building. It’s a wonderful concept. Keeping sipping tea and saving the world.
