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 Nine's simple three-bay facade features a distinctive domed entrance niche that may have been suggested by architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, and inspired by the Hotel Guimard in Paris. Jefferson's notes on his Pavilion Nine drawing indicate that classical ornamentation was inspired by the "Ionic of the Temple of Fortuna Virilis." Occupied first by Moral Philosophy professor George Tucker, and subsequently by William Holmes McGuffey.
