The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) announced the selection of veteran journalist Bradford McKee as the new Editor-in-Chief for Landscape Architecture magazine, the landscape architecture profession’s national magazine of record celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
“He will be a tremendous asset to the magazine and ASLA.”
“Brad McKee brings an intense passion for design, enthusiasm and understanding for the design process, as well as a keen editorial eye through nearly two decades of design journalism experience,” said ASLA Executive Vice President and CEO Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA. “He will be a tremendous asset to the magazine and ASLA.”
For the past 10 years, Brad has worked as a freelance writer and editor. His work has appeared in such publications as I.D., Architect, Slate, Metropolitan Home, Interiors, AARP Bulletin, The Architect’s Newspaper, Harper’s Bazaar, Cookie, Men’s Journal, Regardie’s, Washington Monthly, the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post. He also launched and maintained a daily, web-based bulletin, Architect Newswire, on behalf of Architect magazine.
Editors Note: Will it be more of the same? or will the new Editor in Chief change the publication? It will be interesting to see the direction that Landscape Architecture Magazine takes as traditional publishing is a having a hard time during the Global Financial Crisis as advertising sales are down and loosing some readership to websites and social networking sites.
