Wellesley College Science Center (2021)
Wellesley College is situated on a historic campus designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., the existing Science Center was constructed in the 1920s and expanded in later decades to accommodate new research programs. SOM conducted a thorough analysis of the complex to determine how to reconcile disparate buildings, while making the most of one of the college's most cherished assets—its historic landscape. The plan will modernize existing infrastructure, while creating new spaces to sustain Wellesley's position at the forefront of science education.
The design concept envisions the Science Center as a "living laboratory," with strong connections to the surrounding landscape. It will link existing facilities on Science Hill—including the observatory, the Global Flora greenhouse project, the arboretum, and the botanic gardens—to create a "village" of science programs. The design opens up the fortress-like buildings to the outdoors, and also introduces two new gardens that will be used for scientific and ecological pedagogy.
