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. Jefferson's notes label Pavilion Eight as "Latrobe's Lodge," suggesting strong influence from architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, with the "Corinthian" of "Diocletian's Baths" serving as the source of classical ornament. Subtle playfulness is evident in the design, with arched windows and a recessed two-story alcove entrance divided by a bridge leading to the second story balcony. Occupied first by Mathematics professor Thomas Hewitt Key, and subsequently by William H. Echols.
