Women have practiced as landscape architects for over a century,
since the founding of the practice as a profession in the United
States in the 1890s. They came to landscape architecture as
gardeners, garden designers, horticulturalists, and fine artists.
They simultaneously shaped the profession while reflecting
contemporary practice. It is all the more surprising, then, that
the history of women in American landscape design has received
relatively little attention. Thaisa Way corrects this oversight in
"Unbounded Practice: Women and Landscape Architecture in the Early
Twentieth Century. "Describing design practice in landscape
architecture during the first half of the twentieth century, the
book serves as a narrative both of women--such as Beatrix Jones
Farrand, Marian Cruger Coffin, Annette Hoyt Flanders, Ellen Biddle
Shipman, Martha Brookes Hutcheson, and Marjorie Sewell Cautley--and
of the practice as it became a profession.
