Significance: Designed by Thomas Jefferson and constructed between 1819 and 1822, Pavilion VI is one of ten pavilions located in the academical village of the University of Virginia. By referencing Classical architectural models for each of the pavilions, Jefferson envisioned the buildings to be teaching tools that would cultivate and improve the individual mind and create a community of scholars. Freart de Chambray's interpretation of the Ionic Order at the Theater of Marcellus in Rome was the model selected by Jefferson for the entablature and pediment of Pavilion VI.
