Scope and Content

Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's work as a consulting landscape architect for the design of the garden courtyard of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario. Oberlander worked on this project from 2016-2017 with Enns Gauthier Landscape Architects. The design consists in creating a reference to canadian landscape as the courtyard is located in the middle of the Canadian art gallery. The landscape comprises a raised topography composed of three moss and fern mounds with stacked escarpment stone wall referencing to the geology of the Canadian Shield and separating the mounds from a stone laid surface imitating a river bed. The courtyard also includes a patio space. The garden court was later known as the Fred & Elizabeth Fountain Garden Court and was unveiled in March 2018.

The project series contains sketches of grading and planting, perspective views and layout plans, correspondence with clients and final concept plans.
