THE LIU CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF GLOBAL ISSUES

6476 Northwest Marine Drive, Vancouver, BC

Cornelia Hahn Oberlander Landscape Architects - 2000

The Liu Centre is located at the north edge of a mature coastal forest ‘the Asian Precinct’, which provides shade, a cool microclimate and beautiful views. This natural condition was respected by building on the footprint of an existing structure and parking lot to preserve all existing trees, minimizing the impact on the forest. Native plants such as ferns and native grasses were used to restore the forest floor, eliminating irrigation. The courtyard is paved with recycled pavers, a zen garden acts as a cistern for water retention.
