Landscape Architecture Magazine comes out 12 times a year, but we like to call it a quarterly that comes out monthly. In other words, we pack a lot into each issue for ASLA members, subscribers, and readers who pick up LAM at their local bookstore. But what a lot of our online readers don’t know is that, four times a year, we give digital issues of LAM away for free. As luck would have it, December’s excellent issue is one of those times. Here’s a little preview of what you can find in the free December issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine:

  • L.A.’s Grand Park by Rios Clementi Hale Studios is the big civic park that street-shy Los Angelenos can, and do, actually use.
  • James Sipes, ASLA, reports on the convergence of data visualizations and mapping.
  • Canada’s Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning helps communities literally see climate change’s effects on their own towns.
  • Folk art is often situated in some of the most unique and ephemeral vernacular landscapes around. Kevan Williams finds out what it takes to preserve and restore these unique places.
  • Graduate students from Washington University work the food chain from the farming end and discover the link between “city” and “country” is much more complicated than they’d thought.
  • Also, essays on starlings, Code for America’s Streetmix interface, clean energy as urban form maker, a “risky” schoolyard renovation, a restored rooftop garden in Chicago, and a study of communal property ownership. All this, plus our regular Goods and Books columns and LAM’s annual product guide.
