Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's proposal for the landscape projet for the Portside expansion of the Vancouver Convention Centre. Oberlander worked in this project in 2005 with architectural firm Downs, Archambault & Partners Architects and Musson Cattel Mackey Partnership. The team had previously worked together on another project of expansion and redesign of the portiside in the mid-1980s for Canada Place. Like for the previous project, Oberlander's concept design was intended as a way of creating a link between the sea and the city and ease public access to the portside. Oberlander design raised precast planters with a selection of plants and trees adapted to the Burrad Inlet for the promenade. She was also in charge of the landscape design for the terraced roofscape above the new lobby of the Convention Centre, and the planters lining the pedestrian connection to the waterfront walkway.

The project series contains design development drawings, including landscape plans, and details for planters, reference drawings of the existing landscape, and working drawings, including landscape plans, irrigation plans, and planting plans. The project is also documented through correspondence, including correspondence with architects, clients, consultants and contractors, Oberlander's concept notes, proposal for the landscape concept, documents related to the plant selection, financial documents, press clippings on the project, and photographs of the planting.
