The Land Art Generator Initiative and Burning Man Project have partnered to launch a multi-disciplinary design challenge—LAGI 2020 Fly Ranch—that will create the foundational infrastructure of Fly Ranch.
You are invited to propose your regenerative artwork in this stunning landscape. In 2021 selected design teams will be provided with an honoraria grant for the purpose of building a functional prototype on site.
Provide a functional and replicable solution to one or more of the following five systems. Please note, you do not need to tackle all five systems with your design.
Capture energy from nature, convert it into electricity and store and/or transform and transmit the electrical power to the site.
Sustainably harvest surface, ground, stormwater, and/or atmospheric water and provide systems for the conservation, filtration, recycling, treatment, and/or distribution of water for a variety of uses, including but not limited to irrigation, drinking, cooling, heating, and providing ice and steam.
Through organic and regenerative practices, provide on-site solutions for the sustainable cultivation of nutritious foods without degradation to soil nutrients, release of greenhouse gases, or pollution of the soil or groundwater.
High performance dwelling and event space that exceeds the highest standards of environmental design and provides the greatest flexibility and adaptability of uses.
REGENERATION / RE-COMPOSITION
Identify paths for common waste streams to become feedstocks for new productive uses, including but not limited to composting, energy, light manufacturing processes, and biofuels, with the goal of reducing on-site waste to zero.
