VANDUSEN BOTANICAL GARDEN

5251 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC

Dan Matsushita and Bill Livingstone 1972 - PWL Partnership 2007 - Connect Landscape Architecture Inc. with Cornelia Hahn Oberlander 2011

This prominent botanical garden occupies the site of the original Shaughnessy Golf Course, where through its first few decades Garden Director Roy Forster led the ongoing development of the garden. In 2007 the Phyllis Bentall Garden was created, and in 2011, three acres were restored and updated to accommodate a new Visitor Centre. The design team collaborated with Busby Perkins + Will Architects to create an international model for sustainable design, where the relationship between the building and the garden are capped by an orchid inspired green roof.  The project attained LEED Platinum certification, and is registered for the Cascadia Living Building Challenge.
