Whether it’s the role of landscape architecture in Detroit’s renaissance or the impact of the Sustainable Sites InitiativeTM, Green Building & Design magazine publishes leading landscape projects, their creators, and the products that bring them to life.
The magazine partners with ASLA to ensure its content is on point, and it has a consistent presence at ASLA events because the owners strongly believe what the world is only slowly coming to understand: Landscape architecture is vital to sustainability.
Their stated goal? Publish the best green building magazine on the planet and make it free for industry professionals. To subscribe, visit gbdmagazine.com. Wanna chat at the ASLA Annual Meeting in Boston? Contact Laura Heidenreich.
The magazine has also partnered with the Delaware Valley Green Building Council to produce Philadelphia Green: Sustainable Design in the Delaware Valley, a book showcasing the breadth of green building in the Philadelphia region as Greenbuild descends on the city later this month. It will be available during the conference and after. Contact Tim Schuler for details.
