In my last post I shared photos from my visit to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home. Today I'll be sharing photos from the University of Virginia - founded and designed by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. The campus is simply beautiful and has unique architecture design. We walked through the rotunda (pictured below) and the Academical Village, which is comprised of ten pavillions interspersed with student rooms. It was designed for students and professors to live in the same area. Each has its own classical architectural style as well as it's own walled garden.
The Rotunda was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome and symbolized knowledge.
