WLA is a new quarterly landscape architecture digital zine. WLA provides the opportunity for firms, designers, educators and students to present their ideas and projects on the international stage. WLA encourages the distribution of information and knowledge to everyone across the world.
We have chosen to publish in digital format for quicker and wider distribution and to offer an alternative to those who wish to reduce their impact on the earth by not using trees and inks for printing. We transport WLA using 1’s & 0’s rather by sea, air or road. We are using the Magcloud platform to distribute WLA through a high resolution digital edition at $3.99 and a print-on-demand hard copy edition at $18.00USD that can be ordered and shipped to your door. The hard copy edition receives a free copy of the high resolution digital version. We plan to be digital-only in the near future.
Contributors include James Corner Field Operations, Minneapolis Riverfront, JMD, Design, Valentien+Valentien, and ACT along with others in this 76 page zine.
We hope to invigorate the Landscape Architecture profession that is constantly growing in knowledge and members across the world. Landscape Architects are working on every continent to provide solutions to landscape problems that will enrich the lives of billions, we hope to help showcase those solutions to the world with WLA.
