At Sidewalk Labs Eric explores the relationship between digital technologies and building-scale fabrication. Sidewalk believes that rethinking the construction process, from design to materials and methodologies, is fundamental in our drive towards more sustainable and equitable urbanism.
A former product designer at Google, Interaction Designer at Frog, and Research Fellow at MIT's SENSEable City Lab, Eric holds a Masters degree from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor degree in Environmental Science.
Part of the Alphabet group (parent company to Google) Sidewalk Labs not only imagines the digital-enabled communities of the future, but recently won the bid to deliver one by revamping the 325ha waterfront site adjoining the city of Toronto in Canada, now known as Sidewalk Toronto. New construction methods to make housing and retail space more adaptable and affordable are central to the Sidewalk vision.
