2014 Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) Copenhagen

The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI), Refshaleøen Holding, and the IT University of Copenhagen have launched the third edition of this groundbreaking design competition with $20,000 in prize money.

LAGI 2014 CPH invites you to submit your idea for large-scale public art that generates utility-scale clean electricity for the city of Copenhagen.

The competition will culminate into a beautiful publication featuring the top 50 design solutions, an exhibition in Copenhagen at the Design Society in partnership with the Danish Design Centre in October of 2014, and the possibility of renewable energy sculptures built around Denmark.

Imagine a work of iconic public art on a grand scale situated in the backdrop to one of the most photographed places on the planet (the Little Mermaid Statue in Copenhagen Harbor). And now imagine this work of art contributing clean electricity to the city grid equivalent to that consumed by hundreds or even thousands of homes. Each day—while walking below its beautiful spinning and swooping gestures of functional solar and wind harvesting armatures—visitors are being educated about emerging green technologies and getting inspired about the beauty of our sustainable future.

LAGI 2014 Copenhagen would like to make this vision a reality. The organizers are inviting designers from around the world to submit their ideas for what aesthetic renewable energy of sustainable cities looks like. The competition is free to enter and open to everyone.
