    Competing against professional design firms, a University of Oregon student team placed second in the international Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) competition to design a civic artwork that also generates carbon-free electricity and water.

    The award for their project, “Cetacea,” was presented Thursday, October 6, at the Greenbuild conference in Los Angeles, California. Smithsonian.com featured the project Oct. 5.

    Cetacea, a wave energy converter that incorporates wind generation and photovoltaic panels, competed against 200 entries from more than 50 countries. Another UO team entry in the LAGI competition, “Tidal 94,” placed within the top 50 and, along with Cetacea, will be featured in Powering Places: Land Art Generator Initiative Santa Monica, scheduled for release November 11, 2016, by Prestel.
