CELA logo

The official journal of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA).


The mission of landscape architecture is supported by research and theory in many fields. Landscape Journal offers in-depth exploration of ideas and challenges that are central to contemporary design, planning, and teaching. Besides scholarly features, Landscape Journal includes editorial columns, creative work, and reviews of books, conferences, technology, and exhibitions.


Landscape Journal digs deeper into the field by providing articles from:


• landscape architects

• geographers

• architects


• planners

• artists

• historians


• ecologists

• poets



In publication since 1982, Landscape Journal continues to be a valuable resource for academics and practitioners. It is winner of the 2008 Honor Award in Communications from the American Society of Landscape Architects.


The print edition of Landscape Journal is manufactured using sustainable materials and practices. For more information, see the journal front matter for our material certification, and read about our printer’s environmental commitment.


"[Landscape Journal's] readership extends well beyond landscape architecture to embrace history, geography, the visual arts, and other place-based fields. It is one of the few journals that students, scholars, professionals, and teachers must read in order to remain current..." —George Thompson, Center for American Places


"A much needed forum of the profession...Outstanding quality in organization, content, format, and presentation." —American Society of Landscape Architects
