Cornelia Hahn Oberlander: Ecological Landscapes demonstrates Oberlander’s pioneering vision of socially conscious and environmentally sustainable landscape design in Canada.
The exhibition presents a selection of projects executed in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Yellowknife, and Berlin over a period of more than 30 years. Drawings and writings from the CCA’s Oberlander Archive, as well as photographs taken by the German photographer Etta Gerdes in 2005, situate each project within the larger context of Oberlander’s lifelong philosophical and practical approach to design. The exhibition also features commentary and insights from the landscape architect herself.
Curator: Robert Desaulniers, CCA.
