    Hi All,

    What is the 8 referencing in Land8?

    Or in other words what does Land8 mean?

    I understand the ‘Land’ part I figure, but not the eight.

    Land date?… a date with the land…?

    Or something about the number 8 in reference with landscape architecture.

    What’s the intended meaning?

    Thank you,



    Ernst Glaeser

    LAND AID ??

    Help Mother Earth and us all

    Scott, what are you smoking? Is the imagination going?

    What’s the meaning of Land8, as to the Land and 8 being put together as such?

    Phil Moorehead

    Number 8? I always thought it was an upward facing infinity symbol, as in; “Land to infinity and beyond!”…lounge. (Sorry. I was wondering the same thing the other day, and I have no idea)

    We are not allowed to tell you what the ‘8’ means. Instead you will have to figure it out for yourself through a series of clues hidden throughout the website. The answer will astound you!

    Once you understand the true meaning of the ‘8’, you will become a full member in the lounge. Until then… good luck.

    Once you find the answer you must forward it to 10 friends ….

    Phil is on the right track! 

    The number 8 has numerous symbolic associations throughout all cultures:

    • Perfect rhythm
    • Regeneration/A New Beginning
    • Infinity
    • Without an end
    • Friendship
    • Interconnections
    • Harmony
    • Multiplicity

    Plus, there are eight winds and intermediate directions of space: N, S, E, W, NE, SE, SW and NW

    Very interesting,… that makes my think of other numbers and their numerous associations, such as ….,6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13,… but maybe 8 has the most comprehensive fit with ‘Land’ in the direction of landscape architecture as a practice.   The symbolic associations you’ve presented cover a tremendous range, potentially infinite range.

    Thank you Lara, and the community

    Blah Blah Blah – it’s just a lucky eight ball symbol to make you feel good about being a member.

    …or, 8 could suggest to renew in the unknown; 7 days in a week…on the eighth day we take a leap of faith into a new adventure…8, the atomic number for oxygen…together, breathe in a new beginning…


    Wasn’t this site founded in 2008?


    I always figured it was a nod to West8.

    Scott Jones

    I think that’s the winner, hence the hush of explanation that I’ve known.

    Good to know about West8.  It’s ok, we all have our secret or not so secret inspirations.
