From James Bligh:
… did you hear about Cornelia Oberlander’s award? I think it would be a shame not to share this considering what influence Cornelia has had on some of our country’s most profound places. She is quite frankly a national treasure and it’s wonderful to see her receive recognition.
From UBC, which administers the award:
This award recognizes Cornelia as one of the world’s leading landscape architects who, over the past 60 years, has collaborated with internationally acclaimed architects on a wide range of projects around the world. She devoted her early professional years to designing landscapes for low-cost housing projects and playgrounds throughout Canada. She has also designed the iconic landscapes of the UBC Museum of Anthropology, Robson Square in Vancouver and Ottawa’s National Gallery.
