President Thomas Jefferson felt that the founding and design of the University of Virginia in 1819 was his most lasting achievement. Now spanning 1,065 acres and more than one hundred buildings, the campus features major architectural works by McKim, Mead & White, Michael Graves, Robert A. M. Stern, Hugh Stubbins, Hartman-Cox Architects, and Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. This beautifully photographed guide, the only detailed architectural history of the campus in print, reveals the stories behind over one hundred buildings, historic gardens, art galleries, theaters, and works of sculpture. Exquisitely painted three-dimensional watercolor maps by cartographer Tom Gastel locate featured buildings on the campus in eight individual walks. Award-winning historian Richard Guy Wilson revisits the original tour in University of Virginia and explores new buildings with university architect David J. Neuman.
