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?

What’s the meaning of Land8, as to the Land and 8 being put together as such?December 26, 2013 at 8:00 pm #153474Phil MooreheadParticipant
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)December 27, 2013 at 5:05 pm #153473Roland BeinertParticipant
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 ….December 30, 2013 at 10:38 pm #153471Lara MoffatParticipant
Phil is on the right track!
The number 8 has numerous symbolic associations throughout all cultures:
- Perfect rhythm
- Regeneration/A New Beginning
- Without an end
Plus, there are eight winds and intermediate directions of space: N, S, E, W, NE, SE, SW and NWDecember 30, 2013 at 11:43 pm #153470
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.

I always figured it was a nod to West8.February 8, 2014 at 1:32 am #153464
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.
