What if our cities were powered by artfully designed clean energy generators? Is there an important role for public art to play in the new smart city?

In a focused effort to provide some interesting answers to these questions, the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) and Refshaleøen Holding are thrilled to announce that 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.

LAGI 2014 Design Competition could not come to Copenhagen at a more opportune moment! As the city (the European Green Capital in 2014) moves towards carbon neutral status by 2025 the debate over the aesthetic manifestation and human interaction component of our new energy infrastructure is becoming increasingly important to the planning strategies required to attain zero-carbon sustainability goals.

LAGI 2014 CPH invites interdisciplinary teams from around the world to submit their proposals for infrastructure art of the sustainable city. The competition is free and open to all.
