…to the new home page and blog of Landscape Architecture Magazine, which is launching, by no accident, to kick off April, also known as National Landscape Architecture Month—though we plan to stick around quite a bit longer. Our good friends at The Dirt, Jared Green and Krista Sharp, have been helping us set up the format and load up bits of content to make it seem as if we’ve been doing this since the magazine started in 1910.
The Mission: to bring you short pieces, point you around to new stuff both on the web and off, that we think you should check out well before we’d ever be able to bring them to you in the monthly print magazine. News, features, designs, announcements, events, products, marginalia, and magazine extras—the stuff it pains us to leave out of the print edition—will all have a home here. We will also offer a few stories each month from the magazine, though you’ll want to keep subscribing so you’ll receive the whole thing.
Our mix of information will be eclectic. Our rhythm, we hope, will be daily or more often. Landscape architecture, like everything else, moves faster than it once did. The print magazine continues as our mainstay, the place where we look in depth at topics, places, and people you should know about. But there’s a lot more we don’t want you to pass by.
So bookmark us, put us on your RSS feed, do what you must to come back and see us often. Tell us when there are things you think we should pass on to our readers. Feel free to send us a tweet: @landarchmag.
We’ll be eager to hear what you think.
