Dec 19 2017, 4:32 pm

Surroundings is a four part video series that tells the stories behind some of Metro Vancouver’s well-known public spaces from the perspectives of the landscape architects who designed them. Here is the fourth and final episode.

Episode 4 features Cornelia Oberlander, Ken Larsson, Bryce Gauthier and Bruce Hemstock and focuses on green roofs and making cities sustainable one roof at a time.

This episode looks at two separate sites: The VanDusen Botanical Garden Visitor Centre and the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Surroundings is the first ever video series to provide a comprehensive look into what landscape architects do and how they have helped shape our cities and region.

The series has been made with no funding and put together by two friends life-long friends who were both unexpectedly laid-off from their respective careers. They decided to make the best out of a bad situation by combining their passions – videography and landscape architecture – to make a video series, which is the first of its kind.
