Welcome to LA+ Journal

ORO Editions is pleased to announce PennDesign's new journal LA+ (Landscape Architecture Plus) – the first truly interdisciplinary journal of landscape architecture. Within its pages you will hear not only from designers, but also from historians, artists, lawyers, psychologists, ecologists, planners, scientists, philosophers, and many more besides. The journal aims to reveal connections and build collaborations between landscape architectures and other disciplines by exploring each theme from multiple perspectives.

LA+ looks forward to bringing you a rich collection of contemporary thinkers and designers in two high-quality, lavishly illustrated issues annually. You can subscribe to LA+ for just USD $40 per year. Just click the "Subscribe Now" button below to be taken directly to the ORO Editions website.

Contributors have been drawn from disciplines as diverse as evolutionary ecology, visual arts, biology, bioengineering, landscape architecture, planning, architecture, climatology, environmental history, philosophy, and literature. LA+ WILD promises to be provocative, inspiring, and informative. 

Issue 02: LA+ PLEASURE
LA+ is currently welcoming submissions for Issue 02. Submissions are sought on how the production and consumption of pleasure impacts our cities, our landscapes, and ourselves.
