Cornelia Oberlander, a recipient of the Order of Canada, that country’s highest honor for lifetime achievement, is known for expressing cultural, social and environmental concepts in her work.

Her expert technical knowledge has informed her designs for low-cost housing projects and playgrounds throughout Canada and, more recently, her integrated landscapes for high-profile public buildings.

Oberlander’s mother, who wrote gardening books for children, imbued her with a love of nature. A trademark of the architect’s work is her ability to create landscaping designs that blend with the natural environment.
