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 One features a three bay facade with monumental columns. Doric ornamentation for Pavilion One was inspired by Roland Freart de Chambray's illustration of Diocletian's Baths in Rome. The first resident was John Patten Emmet, an Irish-born Professor of Natural History and Chemistry.
