Scope and content:
Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Victoria General Hospital in Victoria. Oberlander worked in this project between 1979 and 1982. The architectural firm Beinhaker Irwin / Russell Vandiver Architects worked on the project, while Oberlander was in charge of the landscape for the whole hospital site. The intention for the landscape design was to preserve the site major natural features, such as the woodland and meadow, to create an outdoor recreational area for staff and patients and provide views and privacy for some of the hospital units. Oberlander's design included a play area and a treed parking lot to reduce the impact of the parking areas on the rest of the site.

The project series contains concept design reports by architectural firm with Oberlander's annotations, design development drawings and working drawings, including grading plans, landscape plans and planting plans. The project is also documented through correspondence, research material, schematic design, specifications for the landscape and the building construction, contract and financial documents.
