Peter Fergusson and Rebecca Bedell '80 delve into Wellesley’s landscape and its unique contribution to the campus experience for students from the first class in 1875 through today.
Most colleges and universities regard their landscapes as little more than the space between buildings. At Wellesley, founders Henry and Pauline Durant envisioned the landscape as integral to the educational enterprise. It is classroom, gymnasium, open air worship space, a place for communal celebrations and individual contemplation. It was meant to minister to the students’ mental, physical and spiritual well being. At the same time, it is a richly metaphorical landscape, its forms harmonizing with the values and ideals of a Wellesley education—open, exploratory, discovery-based learning. Multiple winding paths lead in various directions, new vistas open around each bend, botanical and geological knowledge blossom with each encounter.
The rehousing and reimagining of the permanent collections in the Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses is nearly complete. These images provide a glimpse into the the Global Flora Conservatory at the Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses, highlighting plant form and carrying Margaret Ferguson's vision of "laboratories under glass" into the 21st century.
