Positive Impact (sustainable)
+ The Land Art Generator Initiative
Ibn Al Haytham Pavilion
The principal team of Studied Impact founded the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) with the goal to design and construct a series of public art installations that uniquely combine aesthetics with clean energy generation. The works will serve to inspire and educate while they provide renewable power to thousands of homes around the world.
In January of 2010 LAGI put out its first international call to artists, architects, scientists, landscape architects, and engineers to come up with both aesthetic and pragmatic solutions for 21st century energy challenges. The 2010 LAGI design competition was held for three sites in the UAE and we received hundreds of submissions from over 40 countries.
In partnership with New York City's Department of Parks & Recreation we held the 2012 LAGI design competition for a site within Freshkills Park (the former Fresh Kills Landfill). We received 250 submissions from around the world. The LAGI 2014 ideas competition will be held in Copenhagen in partnership with IT University of Copenhagen, Refshaleøen Holding, Albertslund Municipality, Danish Architecture Centre, and Information Studies at Aarhus University.
