Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States, felt that the founding and design of the University of Virginia in 1819 was his most lasting achievement. Jefferson's Academical Village centers on the Rotunda, the Lawn, and ten neoclassical Pavilions. Today, spanning 1,065 acres and the 80 buildings described in this guide, the campus features major architectural works by McKim, Mead & White, Michael Graves, Robert A. M. Stern, Hugh Stubbins, Hartman-Cox, and Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. Award-winning historian Richard Guy Wilson and Sara A. Butler take the reader on an enjoyable tour of the University's heritage and recent works, from Jefferson's highly ordered nineteenth-century village to the suburban postmodern campus of the late twentieth century. This beautifully photographed guide reveals the stories behind over 80 buildings, historic gardens, art galleries, theaters, and works of sculpture on the University of Virginia campus. Exquisitely painted three-dimensional maps locate featured buildings on the campus and six sub-districts-The Lawn, Central Grounds, West Grounds, Health Sciences Center, Rugby Road and Carr's Hill, North Grounds, and Observatory Hill. Finally, archival photographs and drawings recapture fragments of "lost" buildings and recall notable historic moments.
