Over 250 submissions have gone online for the  LAGI NYC 2012 competition to design public artwork for Freshkills Park. Some submissions go from the surreal to the amazing, with the majority of the submissions creating large scale installations to match the grand scale of the Freshkills Park. In July LAGI held a shortlisting evening in which a team of professionals got the submissions down to the top 25 submissions with the winners of the 2012 competition to be announced on October 25 in New York City. We has some of the submissions below for your review.

Heliofield is an energy-generating network of solar modules that rise out of the prairie grasses of Fresh Kills Park. The topography and tabula rasa quality of the former landfill site make it ideally suited to collect the locally abundant and renewable solar energy that shines on Staten Island.

Docklands Marina Park | Cork Ireland | OKRA

Ireland’s first large scale urban wetlands and park surrounding a modern sports stadium, which it is hoped will act as a catalyst project for the redevelopment of Cork Docklands, has been awarded by Cork City Council to OKRA.

The winning concept design, led by the Dutch landscape architects OKRA in cooperation with the Irish landscape architects REDscape, took the City Council’s brief for the redevelopment of Marina Park to a new level and offers an exciting vision of dynamic landscapes and ecosystems tailored to a modern and developing city. The design concept includes a sequence of urban water gardens, watercourses and wetland areas that will recycle storm water from the adjacent docklands and create a sustainable environment for the new city park on the River Lee.

Arteologie | Auvergne France | Atelier 37.2

The Nature in the volcanic region of Auvergne has something definitely sacred. It seems to be invisibly linked with the idea of art. Our approach, as artists, is to search this specific nature in order to let the fear, the mystery, the metaphysical and spiritual questioning appears from the volcanic memory.
