Richard Weller LA+

Publishing Announcement: LA+

LA-plusA note from an Australian now somewhere else,  Professor Richard Weller,  Chair of Urbanism Chair of Landscape Architecture, PennDesign (US), of a pending new magazine about the broader issues of Landscape Architecture.

in their own words: 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.

 

Due out in early 2015.

Yet again, Richard does what leaders of Landscape Architecture should be doing.

It is shame that he had to leave Australia to do this. Is there similar level of initiatives coming from Australian academics in this field?  I would hesitate to guess that they are probably very busy talking about setting up a panel to set up a committee to talk about  – something.

Meanwhile, well done Richard.
