2018 Land Art Generator Initiative design competition for Melbourne, Australia! It’s your turn to influence the design of sustainable cities for a post-carbon world.
LAGI 2018 is free and open to anyone anywhere. We invite you to design a large-scale and site-specific public art installation that generates clean energy by incorporating renewable energy technology as the primary media for the art. The theme of this year’s competition is “Energy Overlays—the superimposition of energy and art onto an emerging master plan for urban regeneration.”
The design brief has been carefully crafted with local partners to align with the strategic plans and cultural context of the local site, the city, and the region. The outcomes will demonstrate creative and engaging approaches to urban community energy and resilient microgrids—part of a comprehensive solution to climate change that makes our cities more beautiful as it also makes them more sustainable.
1st Prize $16,000 USD
2nd Prize $5,000 USD
One representative of the first and second place winning teams will be flown to Melbourne, Australia for the award ceremony and exhibition opening.
Award ceremony, exhibition, and book launch held at Fed Square in Melbourne, Australia in October 2018. Satellite exhibitions and workshops will be programmed throughout St Kilda, the City of Port Phillip, and the State of Victoria.
The LAGI 2018 publication, Energy Overlays, featuring the top 50 submissions will be released in October 2018 by Hirmer Publishers.
