Acadia Park, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia (1969)
Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Acadia Park at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project in 1969. The project consisted in design the landscape master plan and the play area for the Acadia Married Student Housing complex, which included in kindergarten. Oberlander preserved the forest edge of the site and even included some of the mature trees present on the site by suspending rope swings to their trunks. The play area also reused ancient trees as play structures, and a wobble walk made of logs ends of various heights.
The project series contains design development drawings, including a proposed landscape master plan and landscape plans, and also working drawings, such as elevations and details of the playground structures and benches. The project is also documented through photographs of the playground and correspondence with clients.
