Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Thunderbird Housing at University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Orberlander worked on this project from 1992-1995 with architectural firm Waisman Dewar Grout Carter. Oberlander landscape design for this project included planting beds, trees and espaliers to screen the windows from the paved commun courtyard. The courtyard also includes a circular barbecue construsted by continuing pavers, the same used as pavement for the courtyard. She also included planting of trees along the facades of the building and along the pathway connecting the student housing to the rest of the campus pavilions.

The project series includes sketches, design development drawings, including landscape concept plans with plant lists, landscape elevations and sections, presentation drawings, and working drawings, such as irrigation plans, site plans, landscape plans and planting plans. The project is also documented through working drawings for the new student housing used as reference and photographs of the landscaping work. Textual records for this project comprises a proposal, concept notes by Oberlander, correspondence, including with clients, architects and consultants, and specifications.
