Professor, Berkeley
Claude Stoller is a retired architect and emeritus professor of architecture at University of California Berkeley. His design work includes projects ranging from single homes to multiple dwellings and commercial and institutional structures. A strong advocate for social housing, he worked with the University to found the San Francisco Community Design Center, which provides free architectural services for low-income communities. 
As a teacher and mentor, Stoller encouraged his students to “go to the gemba”, and his classes sometimes included visits to construction sites and building material factories. He recently discovered lean, and has become a huge fan.
