Cornelia Hahn Oberlander: Genius Loci
Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, AB - May 2 – Aug 9
This celebration of Canada’s most esteemed landscape architect includes photographs, drawings and architectural plans related to 14 projects undertaken by Cornelia Hahn Oberlander over her long career. The show focuses on four areas in which the Vancouver-based Oberlander, who was born in Germany and educated at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, has distinguished herself: playgrounds, social housing, large public projects and smaller residential commissions. All reveal her philosophy of bringing the natural and built environments into harmonious accord.
