LA+ (Landscape Architecture Plus) is an award-winning interdisciplinary journal founded in 2014 by Dr. Tatum L. Hands and Prof. Richard Weller and 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 (published by ORO Editions) and digital formats. LA+ is available for purchase at design bookstores and museums around the world including MoMA in NYC, the Musée de Beaux-Artes in Montrèal, the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, and the National Building Museum in Washington DC. Each issue features an original theme sketch by celebrated landscape architect Laurie Olin.
