The March 5 Biophilia: Pittsburgh meeting will feature Robert Ferry and Elizabeth Monoian, Founding Directors of the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI), who will introduce the discussion topic, “Powering Places: The Aesthetics of Renewable Energy.”
Robert and Elizabeth will discuss how the LAGI project is a part of a global conversation on the shifting aesthetics of sustainable infrastructure. The presentation will show how interdisciplinary collaboration is playing an important role in defining the design influence of renewable energy on our constructed environments and point out the reciprocal role of society in defining the aesthetics of renewable energy infrastructure itself. Several submissions from past LAGI design competitions held for sites in Dubai, NYC, and Copenhagen will be shown as case studies of how renewable energy technologies can be integrated into artworks as a way to create sustainable and educational urban parks.
