Remembering Cornelia Hahn Oberlander

Oberlander at EVDS SAPL 2014

A visionary and pioneer, Oberlander was one of Canada’s most significant landscape architects. She inspired change and excellence in the profession, and her work and influence are recognized locally, nationally and internationally.

Among her many accomplishments, Oberlander received an honorary doctorate in 2014 from the University of Calgary in recognition of her philanthropic efforts and contributions to her field. This honorary degree is the University’s highest academic honour, bestowed on individuals who have demonstrated significant achievements and service to community.

SAPL is very grateful for her contributions to our community, in particular her support of the Master of Landscape Architecture program.
