Publisher's description: Visit the historic Santa Monica Pier at low tide and across the water you'll see the eroded remnants of a decades-old breakwater sea wall peeking up through the waves. Once a protective barrier for a long lost marina, it's now the site of the fourth Land Art Generator Initiative design competition. Entrants were challenged to create a piece of civic art that also acts as sustainable and renewable energy infrastructure for the city of Santa Monica, California. This book includes renderings, illustrations, diagrams, and essays. The result is an astounding sampling of innovative and artistic solutions that employ the latest wave, tidal, wind, and solar technologies.
