Win $20,000 From Copenhagan’s Land Art Generator Initiative!

The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI), Refshaleøen Holding, and the IT University of Copenhagen have teamed up for a grandiose competition to discover a fantastic idea for a beautiful public art instillation that will double as a source of renewable and green energy. The best design gets built, and the inventor behind it earns $20,000!




The plan is to develop an instillation that could be seen in the background of Copenhagan’s famous “Little Mermaid” statue, while looking brilliant and pumping out clean electricity. Note that however you design the artistic and functional parts of the structure, it absolutely must not emit any greenhouse gasses or pollution of any sort, be completely safe for people to view and enjoy up close, and the overall theme should mesh well with the history, geography and lore of Denmark and Copenhagen.

You have until May 18th, 2014 to send in three PDF layout boards containing a written description detailing the work’s features, potential environmental impact, dimensions, etc., up to eight JPG images featuring the project in diorama format, and a title for your installation if you really want to stand out from the crowd! Note that the top 50 designs for this project will be proudly displayed in an upcoming book, but only the top idea will be awarded a cool $20,000! Good luck, design something incredible, and have fun! (Click here to enter the Copenhagan Land Art Generator Initiative competition!)
