    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,

    Sincerely,

    Scott

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

    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.

    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.
