TreeHugger founder Graham Hill is trying to radically reduce his footprint and live happily with less space, less stuff and less waste on less money, but with more design. He calls it "LifeEdited." You can help: Enter the design competition and win up to $70,000 in prizes and possibly design the apartment!

I must confess, at the start of the LifeEdited competition for Graham Hill's apartment I was nervous about whether anyone would submit. I even threw in some ideas of my own to get people going, thinking about it. But then a trickle turned into a deluge of great ideas, detailed submissions and solutions.

The Airstream

One of my favourites is the Airstream by Borghese. This is so evocative; Essentially put everything you need into a small space (like they do in the airstream) and camp in the rest. The designer writes:

"This will be a plug and play concept. The apartment would be a shell where the airstream would dock. Graham needs a place to sleep steam and cook. This could serve as the sleeping, cooking, steaming quarters.....We were once nomads. We lived in Teepees and tents, (as Graham once did)."
