An in-depth exploration of one of the most exciting urban design competitions in recent years—the Land Art Generator initiative for Freshkills Park on New York's Staten Island. This volume features many of the top submissions to the Land Art Generator Initiative, which aims to create sustainable design solutions that integrate art and technology into renewable energy infrastructure around the world. The book draws a much-needed connection between the two critical issues of sustainable development--energy generation and waste management--highlighting solutions that address both problems at once, thereby creating economically beneficial hybrid utility installations.
