ASLA Medal for Oberlander

AIBC Honorary Member Cornelia Hahn Oberlander OC L.L.D. (Hon) FCSLA BCSLA has been awarded the American Society of Landscape Architects Medal, the ASLA’s highest award in recognition of her career as a pioneer in sustainable landscape architecture. She has been an innovator in the design of rooftops and playgrounds, and is known for her collaborations with architects Arthur Erickson (Robson Square, the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia) and Moshe Safdie (Vancouver Public Library, National Gallery of Canada). In announcing its selection, the ASLA also noted that Oberlander, who opened her a Vancouver firm in 1953, was one of the first women in the post-World War II era to establish her own practice.
