The University of Pennsylvania School of Design recently announced the launch of Landscape Architecture Plus (LA+), an interdisciplinary design journal produced at the School under the direction of Dr. Tatum L. Hands, Editor-in-Chief, and distributed globally by ORO Editions. “We wanted to produce something completely different to the usual landscape design journal-which generally just features designers talking to other designers-and truly embrace the rhetoric that landscape architecture is an interdisciplinary field,” Dr. Hands explained.

LA+ is targeted toward the thinking professional and features a range of contribution types including essays, interviews, design criticism, graphic features, illustrations, and provocations.
