2 August 2018: 25 designs shortlisted for the 2018 Land Art Generator Design Competition for Melbourne.

The fifth biennial Land Art Generator Initiative design competition concluded recently with 25 world-changing designs for Melbourne shortlisted by the LAGI 2018 jury.

The winning teams will be announced on 11 October at Fed Square in Melbourne.

Hundreds of people from more than 50 countries around the world submitted proposals for large-scale works of public art capable of producing clean energy for St Kilda Triangle in Australia.

Sponsored by the State of Victoria as part of Action 13 of the Victoria State Renewable Energy Action Plan, the free competition open to landscape architects, engineers, artists, designers, and other international renewable energy enthusiasts encouraged participants to envision a clean energy landscape for a post-carbon world—a public artwork that will help to power the city and inspire the future.

Elizabeth Monoian and Robert Ferry, co-founders of the Land Art Generator Initiative, say they are overwhelmed by the depth of vision evidenced by LAGI 2018 participants, and delighted that eight out of the 25 shortlisted projects are Australian teams.

Each work of public art is not only designed to produce emissions-free electricity, but also provide a creative educational experience for visitors to the historic bayside destination, in keeping with the City’s environmental, social, and cultural goals.

The 20,000 square meter open space on Port Phillip Bay has undergone a series of evolutions since its Traditional Custodians, the Boonwurrung, called the area Euroe Yroke and lived off its plentiful fauna and flora. After European settlement in the early 19th century, the wilderness area gradually grew into a colorful playground for the wealthy.

Connected by railway in 1857 to Melbourne’s central business district, St Kilda became famous for its Victorian bathing pavilions, sea baths, bowling clubs, and a jetty promenade. Between 1870 and 1890, the population exploded to around 19,000 people, with large stone mansions and palatial hotels replacing former shrubland, lagoons, dunes, and swamps.

Today, the City of Port Phillip, with nine distinct neighborhoods including St Kilda, has a population of around 110,000. Its next transition will be to a sustainable city, and the LAGI 2018 proposals help inspire everyone to get there more quickly.

Damian Dewar, Manager of Cultural & Economic Development for the City of Port Phillip and a key partner of this year’s design competition, says St Kilda became a destination for rich people who wanted to escape Melbourne. In the 19th century, he says, going to St Kilda was “going to the sea.”

“We’ve never had so many local and regional teams dominate the shortlist before. It’s a testament to the passion that is held locally for the St Kilda Triangle site and the value placed on design and art in the context of climate solutions for Australia. Wouldn’t we all want to live in a city in which the sustainable energy systems that support our lives exist as creative and educational forms in our landscapes and public spaces? The LAGI 2018 shortlist gives us a glimpse into this possible future. Each proposal demonstrates how existing and emergent clean technologies can accelerate an elegant transition to a new circular economy powered by renewables.”

18 July 2017: In 2018, the LAGI competition comes to Melbourne and the State of Victoria. Through the leadership of the Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning (DELWP), Victoria is setting an example for the world with a goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. Melbourne, already one of the most sustainable cities in the world, is targeting net-zero by 2020.

How much of the clean energy infrastructure required to attain Victoria’s net-zero goal will be implemented within urban areas, and what is the impact of these new installations on our constructed and natural environments? How can solar and wind energy be integrated into public spaces in ways that educate, inspire, and are responsive to the history, culture, and nature of place?

The Victorian State Renewable Energy Action Plan outlines the steps that the government is taking to ensure a smooth and equitable transition to a thriving post-carbon economy. LAGI is delighted to be a part of that vision within the context of Action 13: Supporting important artistic and cultural sustainability events.

Melbourne and the surrounding region has a rich tradition of ambitious and creative public projects aimed towards advancing sustainable development, and the LAGI competition, which brings together multiple disciplines to take on complex problems, is a perfect fit for this vibrant city of arts and culture.

The launch of LAGI 2018 will be in January of 2018 and submissions will be due in May 2018. Your design for LAGI 2018 can become a part of helping Melbourne attain this important goal. In partnership with, and with the generous support of the Victorian Government’s Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning LAGI 2018 will demonstrate the transformation of public spaces into productive landscapes for green energy, inspiring the public to be a part of the solution, and helping Melbourne grow sustainably.

The LAGI 2018 design competition is open to anyone around the world, and invites artists, designers, scientists, engineers, and others to submit proposals for large-scale and site-specific public art installations that generate clean energy for a site in Melbourne.
