Summary

Prize-winning public art installations demonstrate how renewable energy can become an extension of human culture.

The Land Art Generator Initiative is one of the world's most exciting design competitions and for its 2019 challenge, entrants from around the world were asked to create a renewable energy-producing artwork for the UAE's Masdar City in Abu Dhabi. The winning designs are profiled in this generously illustrated volume. Each work demonstrates the aesthetic possibilities of renewable energy infrastructures. Capturing energy from nature and then converting it into power, these designs provide more than clean electricity to the city's residents. They also offer space for recreation and contemplation, while challenging our assumptions about ecological systems, resource generation, consumption, energy storage, and climate change solutions. Best of all, they illustrate the possibilities of living well in a post-carbon future.
