Synopsis

Founded in 2009, the Land Art Generator Initiative, or LAGI, was created to encourage the design and construction of public art installations that have the added benefit of utility-scale clean energy generation. The biennial competition, which receives submissions from around the world, is this year being held in Copenhagen, Denmark - a city that is moving towards carbon neutral status by 2025. The design site is a manmade island in Copenhagen's harbour that is rich in history and possesses stunning views. Fifty of the best entries for the competition are profiled in this volume in detailed spreads that include illustrations, photographs and profiles of those involved in the planning and design. Essays explore the role of creativity in the conception of our new energy landscapes. As LAGI's global reputation expands, this biennial competition and the accompanying volume will help pave the way for innovative strategies for achieving worldwide sustainability.
