University of British Columbia Library Garden & Indian Residential School History & Dialogue Centre

PFS was the lead landscape architect for the Library Garden project and worked closely with the client and architects to design and implement a renewal of a central campus open space and to integrate a new building within it that is the western Canada centre for archives, research, and public education on the history of residential schools in Canada and their legacy among First Nations today.

A series of conversations and workshops among the designers and First Nations early in the project brought First Nations interests and stories into the design process and ongoing reviews by an Advisory Panel that included First Nations and Musqueam representatives ensured continuity of engagement.
