Description


How clean energy technologies can create beautiful, post-carbon cities.
 
As the world races to address the climate crisis, new sustainable energy sources and other infrastructures are transforming our visual landscapes and changing the way we live. Land Art and Climate Action: Designing the 21st Century City Park highlights regenerative artworks that respond to this pivotal moment in human history and inspire viewers to embrace the beauty, abundance, and cultural vibrancy of a world that has left fossil fuels behind. Featuring three hundred color images, the book includes essays by Robert Ferry, Peter Kurz, Elizabeth Monoian, Alessandra Scognamiglio, and Sven Stremke to bring attention to design projects and landscape architecture where environmentalism is part of the concept, not an afterthought.

Praise For…


"This volume documents a design competition led by art-design group Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) on the occasion of the 2023 German Federal Horticultural Show in Mannheim, Germany. Their goal: transforming a deaccessioned US military
base into a clean-energy park that both benefits and involves a community formerly excluded from the site. . . . The program as a whole provides an imaginative template for developing greening programs in other urban communities."
