Activism by Design

Nina Antonetti, Assistant Professor of Landscape Studies
Nina Antonetti traces the evolution of the Smith College campus from the original 27-acre pastoral academic village designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to John Nolen's formal Quadrangles to the 1995 Master Plan of Cornelia Oberlander '44 and Shavaun Towers '71, which knits together varied architectural forms and philosophies into a sustainable vision for future growth. The result is an eclectic landscape that encodes the college's history while remaining an integral part of Smith's educational mission.
