The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) recently selected Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, O.C., MBCSLA, FCSLA, FASLA as the inaugural recipient of the Governor General’s Medal in Landscape Architecture. The CSLA wrote: “Many ground-breaking ideas, such as the importance of exposure to nature and the creation of opportunities for social interaction, formed the foundation of [Hahn Oberlander’s] design philosophy decades ago. She has played a seminal role in the evolution of modernism in the context of architecture, landscape architecture, and planning. Hahn Oberlander is a champion and continual advocate for landscape architecture, a teacher, and is considered a leader by several generations of landscape architects in Canada and abroad.”
