Description
As part of Jefferson's design for UVA's Academical Village, professors lived and taught in unique Pavilions, which each served as a distinct model of architectural ideals. Pavilion Three's five-bay facade and prominent three-bay portico were derived from drawings provided by architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, with Jefferson's notes indicating that entablature was inspired by Palladio's depiction of the Corinthian Order. Corinthian capitals were carved in Carrara, Italy, after Italian stone carvers found Virginia stone to be of inadequate quality.The first resident was John Tayloe Lomax, UVA's first Professor of Law.
