Pavilion V is located on the central-west side of the Lawn at U.Va. As with other pavilions in Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village, this structure represents a specific architectural order and serves as a unique "teaching tool" for scholars at the university. No two pavilions are exactly alike. Pavilion V is distinguished by an Ionic portico and egg and dart molding above the entablature.
Backstory and Context
Pavilion V, with its six-columnn portico, represents the Ionic order. An egg and dart molding featuring carved rosettes between the modillions adorns the entablature. It, along with the other buildings on the Lawn, are "models of taste and good architecture."1 Consequently, the structure is as much an architectual teaching tool as it is a residence. The first occupant of Pavilion V was the University of Virginia's first Professor of Ancient Languages, George Long.
