Finally, a third place/special mention went to &ldquo;Swings&rdquo; by Lu Chao and Weng Shenxia.

Taking place in cities worldwide, LAGI competitions seek inventive, large-scale works of public art that produce clean energy. In this latest edition, entrants had to design for St. Kilda Triangle in Melbourne. Although there is no guarantee that any of the projects will be realized, “public support may lead to their incorporation as a part of the larger co-design process currently underway for the St. Kilda Triangle site”, LAGI says.
