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. Published twice yearly, each issue of the journal explores a theme from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, provoking new modes of creative inquiry and practice.
World Landscape Architecture (WLA) had the chance to email interview Professor Richard Weller, Chair of PennDesign’s Landscape Architecture Department about the launch of the new journal.
