National Architecture Week 2015
Today marks the first day of National Architecture Week 2015. We are celebrating by doing a post a day for the week to highlight different architects.
But first, why does National Architecture Week start near April 13 every year? Because that is Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, and he is the only United States President to have been, among other things, an architect. Below is his sketch of The Rotunda at the University of Virginia, a building he designed to represent “authority of nature and power of reason”.
Be sure to check back each day for a new post. We will highlight five architects whose work is having a real impact on our daily lives.
