The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI), provides a platform for artists, architects, landscape architects, and other creatives working with engineers and scientists to bring forward human-centered solutions for sustainable energy infrastructures that enhance the city as works of public art while cleanly powering thousands of homes.


land art generators are works of public art that:

  • Capture energy from nature and cleanly convert it into electricity
  • Pay back their environmental footprint and construction cost by producing kilowatt-hours of energy that offset existing uses
  • Create a unique experience for the public and stimulate an increase in visitors to the site (power plants as tourist attractions!)
  • Create places for leisure and learning
  • Do not negatively impact the environment
  • Increase livability of communities

LAGI 2016 invites creatives, scientists, engineers, and others from around the world to submit ideas for large-scale and site-specific public art installations that generate carbon-neutral electricity and/or drinking water for the City of Santa Monica, California. LAGI 2016 Design Guidelines >
