The exhibition featured the ideas and designs of Canada’s most celebrated landscape architect, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, whose 70-year body of work has influenced how people connect to place. Highlighting renowned public and private works along with designs that have embraced concepts such as places for children and projects with a social emphasis, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander: Genius Loci seeks to find a connection between modernist design and a desire for community connection to the natural environment.

At a time when climate awareness and adaptation are of the highest importance, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander’s work reveals many lessons for contemporary practices that attempt to address new relationships between landscape, the human experience and built form.
