LA+ (Landscape Architecture Plus) is an award-winning interdisciplinary journal produced by the University of Pennsylvania Weitzman School of Design. LA+ explores landscape architecture's interdisciplinary potential, bringing readers a rich collection of contemporary thinkers and designers in two lavishly illustrated issues annually. Within our pages you hear not only from designers, but also from historians, artists, geographers, psychologists, ecologists, planners, scientists, philosophers, and many more. Our aim is to reveal connections and build collaborations between landscape architecture and other disciplines by exploring each issue’s theme from multiple perspectives. LA+ Journal is committed to content that promotes a global diversity of perspectives and cultures, and which encourages an expansive understanding of the field of landscape architecture and the role of landscape architects.

LA+ is a high-quality, full-color journal available in print (through publisher ORO Editions, California) and digital formats. Each issue features an original theme sketch by celebrated landscape architect Laurie Olin.
