Scenario Journal is a digital publication focused on the next generation of urban landscapes, dedicated to fostering conversation between design and the sciences. Drawing on contributions from a range of disciplinary perspectives, each issue of Scenario explores a topic where collaboration, translation, speculation, and new modes of inquiry are needed.

LA+ (Landscape Architecture Plus) Journal is a biannual journal produced out of the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. LA+ aims to reveal connections and build collaborations between landscape architecture/urban design and other disciplines by exploring each issue's theme from multiple perspectives.

Coastlines are migrating upland faster than at any point in recorded history. As dunes, wetlands and coastal marshes roll back, the need for littoral adaptation and protection increases. In the wake of mounting climate volatility and demands for resilient infrastructure, landscape architects are increasingly called to engage in these valuable and vulnerable costal zones. Yet vast stretches of the coast across the world lack the basic data for understanding tides, surges, swells and other coastal processes.
