Langara College campus gardens

Campus gardens next to the library building at 100 49th Avenue.

The award-winning work by the Vancouver firm Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg, it includes large reflective pools with minimalist planting of Japanese maples and yellow-twig dogwoods. The idea was to create a garden of elegant sensory delights where water meanders and cascades through the campus.

Jane Durante – “The Langara garden is so refined and has such a simple and direct way of approaching the world. It is typical of the classy style of Chris Phillips.
