We recently published the #06 edition of WLA Landscape Architecture Quarterly Magazine and the search is on again for great landscape architecture projects to publish in the #07 edition. We have opened submissions for the #07 edition of WLA and we are looking for interesting projects (built and unbuilt) from across the world. We accept submissions from landscape architects (professionals and students), urban designers, landscape designers, architects, artists, and other built environment professionals but all projects must be focused on the landscape.
Design competition for a Lighting Master plan for the future urban development of Kruunuvuorenranta as a part of Helsinki.

Today we launch – LAND Reader – a new website that will provide the latest news, books, products, events and other information updates from across the web. LAND Reader will give updates from local to international built environment news to summaries of interesting topics. LAND Reader will be your weekly read for news about landscape architecture.
Why create another website when we have World Landscape Architect? World Landscape Architect has evolved from a blog, posting news articles; to a news website giving the latest design projects in rich images. As we read a vast amount of news daily from across the web and we sort to provide this information via twitter. However, we felt World Landscape Architect readers where missing out so we felt a new web space was needed and the reason for launching LAND Reader . World Landscape Architect is going to change over the coming months and will be moving to new home in 2011.
LAND Reader will be predominately text based so that people from across the world with varying access to the web (dial-up, broadband, mobile) will be able to be informed about landscape architecture. LAND Reader will also look at interesting topics and give a summary of resources so that readers can stay informed and today with the launch of the new site we give our first sample of a topic post with Landscape Urbanism vs New Urbanism.
