Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's project for the new Visitor Centre of VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project from 2007 to 2011 with architectural firm Busby Perkins+Will Architects and landscape architecture firm Sharp and Diamond Landscape Architects. The project consisted in building an access to the botanical garden from Oak Street. The building includes a undulating green roof shaped as a native orchid leaf and covered in plants inspired by the Pacific Northwest Coastal grassland. The building entrance is marked by "a single petal raised above the others" [1] while another of the giant roof petal in the back "almost touched the ground, and transported water to Oberlander's rainwater garden." [2]

The project series contains design developement drawings such as site plans, planting plans, landscape plans, landscape sections and a few sketches, and also sets of building drawings or older landscape drawings of the garden used as reference. The project is also documented through textual records, including correspondence with architects, consultants and clients, project proposals, documentation on botanical garden or on the VanDusen Botanical Garden, and press articles and clippings about the project. The project series comprises also digital photographs of the completed building.
