For the third year in a row, Places is the number one website for landscape architects. Places began as a print journal in 1983 by faculty at MIT and Berkeley, but migrated online in 2009. The interdisciplinary journal is a 501(c)3 organization published by Places Journal Foundation in collaboration with the Design Observer Group, and receives support from several educational institutions. Simply put, the goal of Places is to promote sustainable cities and landscape by publishing content that focuses on the public realm. Their work, which dives into almost every aspect of the built environment, is covered in essays, multimedia, peer review, poetry and other fascinating projects. You can comment on articles and receive their newsletter by registering for a free account.
