Design Challenge:
LAGI 2022 will expand the public imagination of what is possible using existing clean energy technologies to propose beautiful, sculptural modules that can plug into the smart postcarbon city. We are seeking designs that can exist simultaneously across a variety of scales—variations for a residential garden or for a large civic space using modular components or scalable solutions that are consistent in concept and form, and that give back regeneratively by making and storing energy to support a thriving community.
