Inspired by the Pantheon and completed in 1827, Thomas Jefferson's
Rotunda at the University of Virginia was designed to represent the
"authority of nature and power of reason." Jefferson's masterwork had
suites of oval rooms that served as classrooms and lecture halls, and a
library on the domed top floor. After a fire badly damaged the building
in 1895, leaving only the brick walls, the structure was rebuilt with a
modified design by McKim, Mead & White. The Rotunda once again
underwent a renovation for America's Bicentennial.
A 2006 report documented the history, evolution, and condition of
the building, and made recommendations for its renovation, restoration,
and reuse. The ensuing restoration sought to more accurately reflect
Jefferson's plan, detailing, and original use. The brick walls were cleaned,
stabilized, and repointed; the wood windows were rehabilitated; and the
painted copper sheet metal window architraves, pediments, and building cornices were restored. The sheet metal roofing and dome skylight
were replaced, and 16 new Carrara marble column capitals replaced
the eroded portico capitals. The courtyards flanking the drum of the
building were redesigned, and a new fountain was constructed in the
east courtyard. A new service level was excavated beneath the Rotunda
and adjacent east courtyard to provide space for mechanical equipment,
including elevators to meet accessibility and functional requirements.
A major discovery was the existence of the original laboratory -
called the "chemical hearth" and used for teaching and experimentation
- which was concealed within the brick walls. Exposed and stabilized,
the hearth is now a major interpretive exhibit. New mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, communication, security, and audiovisual
systems were installed to accommodate the classroom, meeting, and
library functions. Once again, the Rotunda is the focal point of the university and remains one of America's most important historic buildings.
