Thomas Jefferson
b. 4-13-1743; Albemarle Co., VA
d. 7-4-1826, Monticello, VA

Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, studied the architecture of Paris and read about classical architecture, particularly Palladio, which provided him with a firm understanding of the classical tradition. Jefferson's designs were the precursors for Federal style architecture.

Among Jefferson's designs are Monticello, his own home, the campus of the University of Virginia, the Virginia State Capitol and private homes.

Notable among Jones' plans are Covent Garden, the Queen's House in Greenwich, and the Banqueting House at Whitehall. He was also a stage and costume designer, introducing moveable scenery and the proscenium arch to English theatre.

Jones' career was ‘cut short’ by the English Civil War.
