Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape design for the United Nations Peacekeeping Monument in Ottawa, Ontario. Oberlander worked on this from 1990-1993 with Richard Henriquez & Partners and sculptor Jack Harmon. Together, they won the design competition organized by the National Capital Commission in 1990. The monument is situated between the National Gallery of Canada and the United States Embassy, between St. Patrick Street and Murray Street. The monument consists in three bronze cast figures of peacekeeping soldiers on a granite slab. Oberlander elaborated the planting scheme and designed "an oval grove of twelve oak trees representing Canada's ten provinces and two territories [...]" [1], except Nunavut that was still included in the Northwest Territories at the time. The project was completed in 1993.

Project series contains ten landscape working drawings, including a site plan, landscape sections, planting and grading plans, and an irrigations plan. The project is also documented through textual records, including design competition information documents, competition proposal, correspondence with architects, client and consultants, specifications, financial documents, press about the project and photographs of the construction and the inauguration of the monument.
