Help Graham Hill edit his life for a chance to win fabulous prizes
It’s no surprise Graham Hill wants you to reduce your carbon footprint in a big way, but his new initiative Life Edited is starting small. Hill wants you to help design his brand-new 420 square-foot apartment in NYC. Offering up to $70,000 in prizes, Life Edited is raising the stakes for low-impact designers.
He started his search for a new pad last year. Being Graham Hill, his concerns went far beyond the normal “One bedroom or two? Is it close to a train? Where exactly do I have to live to afford a back yard?” thoughts of the average New Yorker. With 80 percent of New York’s footprint coming from buildings, Hill thought deeply about where to live. He decided he didn’t need many rooms (apparently one will suffice), he didn’t need as much stuff, and he would be happier living simply.
“I want to create a tiny jewelbox of an apartment,” he said. “It’s good for my wallet, good for the environment, and good for my mental health.” He decided to crowdsource his dream box and wants all interested parties – designers, commenters, people with ideas, or just those with feedback – to weigh in.
“We’ve all heard the saying, ‘The future is here, it’s just not widely distributed,” he said. “I want everyone to join us at Life Edited. The message is ‘Less but better; make room for the good stuff.’”
