University of Virginia

 

Charlottesville, Virginia. The University was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. I believe this building is called The Rotunda - for obvious reasons :-) - and was designed by Thomas Jefferson.

Scanned slide from 1971.

I like the scale of it with the peops in the shot.
Tom Wilson: Certainly shows the size of it, doesn't it?
Quite a huge structure Tom!
Tom Wilson: I don't think modesty was ever one of Jefferson's virtues, Richard smile
Magnifique !
Tom Wilson: Certainement! Merci, Martine.

Truly classic stuff Tom
Tom Wilson: Jefferson was heavily influenced by Palladio, as we can see!
A very talented man
Tom Wilson: A late "Renaissance Man" smile
Very classical Tom, and White is quite symbolic.
Tom Wilson: Jefferson certainly had some design skills!

What a fine building, Tom
Tom Wilson: Beautiful, isn't it. And in this environment the university has great problems over sexual harassment of female students - it seems that environment can't cure everything!
I like the round design. I have a lovely curved wall in two rooms. Love it.
Tom Wilson: It's got a lot going for it!
They might be, in our terms, a young nation, but they certainly have some fine historic buildings.
Tom Wilson: They have indeed, Brian.
A spectacular place, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Frank.
Mr Jefferson was a remarkable man...
