Synopsis

Formerly a symbol of immense urban waste, the Fresh Kills Landfill is being transformed into an enormous urban parkland that is destined to exemplify the values of ecological restoration and environmental sustainability. Part of that transformation includes a competition for a site-specific public artwork designed to operate as a source of clean energy for the city's utility grid. This volume features many of the top submissions to the LAGI competition, which aims to create sustainable design solutions that integrate art and technology into renewable energy infrastructure around the world. The book creates a much-needed connection between two critical issues of sustainable development - energy generation and waste management - highlighting design solutions that address both problems at once, thereby creating economically beneficial hybrid utility installations.
