Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

First presented in conjunction with the landmark exhibition of Jefferson's drawings for the Academical Village (that later became the U. of Virginia), the volume has been substantially revised for this edition, with updated essays, and additional drawings. Published in an oversized format (10.25x10.25") and well-illustrated with color plates of Jefferson's architectural drawings and photos of the buildings, the story of the building of the university is an excellent introduction to Jefferson's ideas and times.

Synopsis:

Thomas Jefferson's design for the University of Virginia is widely hailed as a masterpiece. It is his greatest architectural accomplishment, the summation of his quest for intellectual freedom. The story of the University encompasses the political and architectural worlds, as Jefferson struggled against great opposition to establish a new type of educational institution. Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village offers a comprehensive look at Jefferson's design for the University, at how it came into being, at the different perceptions of its successes and failures, and at the alterations that have taken place down through the years. The revised edition incorporates research that has been ongoing since the book first appeared in 1993, and includes a preface by Richard Guy Wilson, essays on architecture and education and the Lawn, additional architectural drawings and historic photographs, a foreword by President John T. Casteen III, and numerous color illustrations.
