First issue of DesignLA to hit doorsteps on Sunday, May 21

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#architecture–The Los
Angeles Times
will debut a new print magazine, DesignLA, on
May 21 with a second issue planned for the fall. The glossy premium
edition will be delivered to Sunday Times subscribers with a
digital version available online. Drawing on the diverse landscapes and
distinctive architectural traditions of Southern California, the
magazine will present the state of design in one of the world’s largest
creative marketplaces with an eye to the future.

“We’ve arrived at a transformative moment, when our famously sprawling
city is getting increasingly vertical,” said Times Editor-in-Chief and
Publisher Davan Maharaj. “Our readers are very interested in the people
who are making Los Angeles the center of innovation, design and
architecture. That is one of the main themes DesignLA will
explore.”

Michael Wollaeger, previously editor-in-chief of Interiors and Western
Interiors and Design
and executive editor of Architectural Digest,
is editor-in-chief of DesignLA. The editorial coverage will be
bylined from a mix of L.A. Times staff writers and contributing editors
with features on a range of subjects including residential and
commercial architecture, interior and landscape design, individuals and
institutions moving the art and fashion worlds forward, and restorations
and innovations within the local environment.

Los Angeles Times subscribers and advertisers have a strong
affinity for well-made print products,” added Chris Argentieri, Times
senior vice president and general manager. “We see DesignLA as a
companion to our regular Saturday, Hot Property and Image
sections – a seasonal reference for visionaries, trends and style
resources – that readers may return to throughout the year, on their
coffee tables and in their bookshelves.”
