LAGI 2018
site typology: energy overlays

 

 

Through the vision and sponsorship of the State of Victoria the LAGI 2018 competition was held for Melbourne.

LAGI 2018 was free and open to anyone around the world, and invited artists, architects, designers, landscape architects, scientists, engineers, and others to submit proposals for large-scale and site-specific public art installations that generate clean energy for a site in Melbourne.ourne.

Through the leadership of the Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning (DELWP), Victoria is setting an example for the world with a goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. Melbourne, already one of the most sustainable cities in the world, is targeting net-zero by 2020.

The Victoria State Renewable Energy Action Plan outlines the steps that the government is taking to ensure a smooth and equitable transition to a thriving post-carbon economy. LAGI is delighted to be one small part of that vision within the context of Action 13, "Supporting important artistic and cultural sustainability events."

What does renewable energy infrastructure look like when it is woven into the fabric of the city? The LAGI 2018 ideas competition invited teams to design a clean energy landscape for a post-carbon world—a public artwork that will help to power the city and inspire the future.

The Mayor of City of Port Phillip, talks about how the LAGI 2018 design competition is developing a new relationship between the community and the energy that it thrives on. By designing new energy infrastructure as public art, it will leave a lasting legacy, "locally loved and globally admired."

"By bringing together the world's best thinkers" on the LAGI 2018 challenge, Victoria is leading the cultural innovation and design of new energy systems as a practical and social response to climate change, contributing to the State's goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. LAGI 2018 shows how design and clean energy "are two sides of the one coin."
