Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the garden of Linda Yorke and Gordon Forbes in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project in the second half of the 1990s. She worked with architect André Rowland who was in charge of designing an addition to the residence designed in the late 1940s by Ned Pratt from architectural firm Sharp, Thompson, Berwick and & Pratt. The project consisted in redesigning the entire yard and adding a play area for children. Oberlander included terraces next to the addition to the house, planting beds and planters. The play area included a tower house accessible by a rope bridge, a two levels playhouse with wooden porch, a slide, a fireman pole and a ladder, and a small water canal with stone edges and activated by a hand pump.

The project series contains landscape sketches, design development drawings, including a landscape concept plan, details, sections and elevations for play area and play structures, and building plans used as reference. The project is also documented through correspondence, including with clients, suppliers and consultants, concept notes by Oberlander, plant lists, financial material, research material, and photographs of the landscaping.
