Title: THE HISTORICAL EVOLUTION OF THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE BUILDING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH

Abstract: The University of Guelph Landscape Architecture building is the home of the first landscape architecture program in Canada and has been continuously used since 1969. While many studies have been conducted on the performance of the building, few have examined the evolution of the building over 50 years and how physical change has been affected by the socio-cultural and design milieu. To better explore this, a landscape biography approach was used to understand how the landscape architecture building became what it is today. A comprehensive literature review, archival search, and interviews with key people were used to develop a historical record that was compared with design education movements over five decades. The results are intended to document the history of an outstanding education facility and inform future development.
