Scope and content:
Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for Student Housing at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project from 1991-1993 with architectural firm Matsuzaki Wright Architects. The landscape concept consisted in including the student housing building in a native woodland setting. Oberlander integrated the building with the existing woodland by adding native trees around the building and the access pathways and drives.

The project series contains design development drawings, including landscape concept plans, and landscape plans, and working drawings, such as grading plans, planting plans and landscape sections. It also contains construction drawings for the building used as reference. The project is also documented through textual records, such as concept notes by Oberlander, correspondence, including correspondence with architects, clients and consultants, reports and studies on the site, specifications, financial documents, and photographs of the landscaping.
