St Kilda Triangle named design site for international sustainable energy infrastructure ideas competition

"Melbourne’s St Kilda Triangle, the beachside block home to the historic Palais Theatre, has been named as the design site for international sustainable energy infrastructure design competition organized by the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI).

The competition will seek the best designs for large-scale, site-specific public art installations that are capable of generating clean energy on the site, which is currently undergoing development, to an ARM Architecture masterplan.

Architects, landscape architects, artists, designers, scientists, engineers and others will be invited to submit design proposals from 5 January 2018.

With the slogan 'renewable energy can be beautiful,' LAGI is an initiative that aims to 'accelerate the transition to post-carbon economies by providing models of renewable energy infrastructure that add value to public space, inspire and educate.'

Run every two years, the competition has previously been held at sites in Dubai/Abu Dhabi, New York City, Copenhagen, and Santa Monica. Melbourne was named as 2018’s host city in July."
