On September 26th, 2013 in class we discussed the University of Virginia space. The university was founded by Thomas Jefferson in Richmond, Virginia in 1817/1819. The U.S. President, Jefferson was the main designer of the architecture of the school and continued his interest in architecture and education during his busy presidential years. In 1805, writing a letter to a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Jefferson proposes that a university “should not be a house but a village.” He is known as the “Father of the University of Virginia” for his huge accomplishments and successes toward the founding of the school.
