The University of Virginia is regarded as “the proudest achievement of American architecture in the past 200 years” by the American Institute of Architects – and for good reason. The buildings were conceptualised by founding father Thomas Jefferson. The Jeffersonian style of architecture is characterised by the use of octagonal shapes, red-brick construction and white columns. One of the best examples of this style is the Rotunda at the University of Virginia.
