Schuylkill Falls, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1952)
This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape design for Schuylkill Falls, a public housing development on Ridge Avenue, in the East Falls neighbourhood of Philadelphia. Oberlander worked on this project from 1952-1955, after she was recruited by architect Oskar Stonorov. Oberlander worked on the landscaping with Dan Kiley. The project was initally divided in six phases and was planned to spread across five city blocks. One of the phases included the construction of two sixteen-storey housing towers, but only one was built. The building was demolished in 1996.
The project series contains five landscape plans for all five city blocks project and a set of landscape specifications, the first written by Oberlander.
