LAGI 2019 Abu Dhabi—Return to the Source—invited creatives to design an iconic work of art for a landmark site within Masdar City, Abu Dhabi using renewable energy technology as a medium of creative expression to provide on-site energy production consistent with the master plan of the city.
Masdar is the Arabic word for “source.” As the name of Abu Dhabi’s multifaceted renewable energy company and most ambitious low-carbon development, it is a reference to the Sun, the source of energy that sustains life on Earth, drives the wind and waves, and that over millions of years powered the transfer of ancient carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and into the ground, creating a climate habitable to humans.
“Source” also has meaning within the context of the Land Art Generator initiative, which was established in the UAE in 2008. The first LAGI design competition was supported by Masdar and the award ceremony took place at the 2011 World Future Energy Summit, where eight years later the 2019 LAGI design competition is launched.
This year’s special edition is in partnership with the 24th World Energy Congress, the largest and most influential global energy event, that has been a forum for innovation and dialogue on energy issues for 95 years. The 24th World Energy Congress will be the venue for the exhibition of 28 shortlisted projects designed for Masdar City.
