Fritz Haeg divides his time between his architecture and his design practice Fritz Haeg Studio. He is the author of Edible Estates, which advocates replacing front lawns with food gardens. Haeg also created the “Sundown Schoolhouse,” a self-designed educational environment based in his geodesic dome in Los Angeles, and recently published The Sundown Salon, an interactive, fold-out book about the experience.
In Glimmer: Haeg explains why people should “eat their lawns” and also explores the possibilities for lifelong education.
Quote: “We have to get beyond this idea we have that learning only happens in a college classroom. I like the idea of learning from other people in a way that is woven into your daily life, as opposed to being part of some colossal four year education program.”
