Présentation du contenu
Project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's proposal for the landscape master plan of Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary. Oberlander worked on this project in the early 2000s. Oberlander was in charged of developping the concept for the landscape master plan and create a healing garden. Her concept included a site entry with a strong presence of the nature to reassure the visitor, the use of native plants to keep the landscape of the hospital in harmony with site natural landscape, the use of plants that encourage and support wildlife to allow sick children to appreciate nature, outdoor seating areas and pathways with lighting to be used even at nightime, and environments for play and learning for sick children and their relatives. A participatory method was also applied for the design of the master plan throughout workshops organized with the children of the hospital in which they were invited to draw what they wanted for the healing garden.
The project series contains landscape plans, site plans, landscape concept plans, site concept plans and presentation drawings. The project is also documented through Oberlander's concept notes, correspondence, including correspondence with client, Oberlander's landscape proposal, landscape concept presentation documents, financial documents, research material, and photographs of the site for the hospital.
