Joseph Fry, Hapa Collaborative, external link, external link, Principal, BCSLA CSLA ASLA is the founding principal of Hapa Collaborative, and a vocal advocate for Vancouver’s public realm and the role of the landscape architecture, and is dedicated to deepening our collective understanding and investment in civic placemaking.
Joe will review the work that his practice has been involved in over 14 years and discuss how Hapa has interacted with the work of mid-century modernists in Vancouver, specifically Cornelia Oberlander’s signature sites, including šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énk Square at Vancouver Art Gallery, and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. The discussion will also examine into how landscape architecture as a profession has evolved – in this age of Reconciliation – to be more multiculturally literate and be a voice for stories who would be otherwise unheard.
