The Rotunda is a building located on The Lawn on the original grounds of the University of Virginia. Thomas Jefferson designed it to represent the "authority of nature and power of reason" and modeled it after the Pantheon in Rome. Construction began in 1822 and was completed shortly after Jefferson's death in 1826. The campus of the new university was unique in that its buildings surrounded a library (the principal function of the Rotunda) rather than a church, as was common at other universities in the English-speaking world. To many, the Rotunda symbolizes Jefferson's belief in the separation of church and education, and represents his lifelong dedication to education and architecture. The Rotunda was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966, and is part of the University of Virg

  • 弗吉尼亚大学圆厅图书馆(通称the Rotunda)是位于弗吉尼亚大学最初办学地之大草坪的一栋建筑。托马斯·杰斐逊设计此馆,意在表现「自然的权威与理性的力量」,而取法于罗马的万神庙。馆舍始建于1822年,竣工于1826年杰斐逊逝世后不久。新落成的大学其校园以馆舍环绕图书馆(是为圆厅首要的功能)而非教堂分布的设计特异于当年英语世界其他大学的通行做法。于许多人而言,此圆厅即象征了杰斐逊之分离教会与教育的信念,也代表了其人终其一生对教育与建筑的献身。圆厅图书馆于1966年入列美国国家历史名胜之中,于1971年作为弗吉尼亚大学历史区的一部分再获指定。 弗吉尼亚大学校舍、其临近区域以及不远处蒙蒂塞洛的杰斐逊故居共同组成一处世界遗产,受国际保护。此遗产是由现代人建造而成,如此而能获联合国教科文组织认定者在美国仅有六处(其余五处为:波多黎各、、独立厅、自由女神像及赖特的建筑作品)。 于当年而言圆厅图书馆造价为57773美元(约合2006年之992792美元)。其直径与高度皆为77英尺(23米)。
  • La Rotonda (en inglés, Rotunda) es un edificio situado en The Lawn, en los terrenos originales de la Universidad de Virginia. Fue diseñada por Thomas Jefferson con el objetivo de representar «la autoridad de la naturaleza y el poder de la razón», inspirándose en el Panteón de Roma. Su construcción empezó en 1822 y se completó en 1826, poco después de la muerte de Jefferson. El campus de la nueva universidad era único porque sus edificios estaban rodeados por una biblioteca (la función principal de la Rotonda) en lugar de por una iglesia, como era habitual en otras universidades del mundo angloparlante. Para muchos, la Rotonda simboliza la creencia de Jefferson en la separación de la Iglesia y la educación, y representa su dedicación durante toda la vida a la educación y a la arquitectura. La Rotonda fue declarada Hito Histórico Nacional en 1966, y forma parte del , designado en 1971. Este edificio universitario, junto con sus alrededores y la cercana casa de Jefferson, Monticello, forma uno de los solo seis sitios modernos construidos por el hombre de los Estados Unidos declarados Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la Unesco (los otros cinco son el centro histórico de San Juan, las , el Independence Hall, la Estatua de la Libertad y las obras arquitectónicas de Frank Lloyd Wright). El coste original de la construcción de la Rotonda fue de 57 773 dólares (equivalentes a 992 792 dólares de 2006). El edificio tiene una altura y un diámetro de 23.5 m.

The Rotunda was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966, and is part of the University of Virginia Historic District, designated in 1971. The collegiate structure, the immediate area around it, and Jefferson's nearby home at Monticello combine to form one of only six modern man-made sites in the United States to be internationally protected and preserved as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (the other five are the Old City of San Juan, the San Antonio Missions, Independence Hall, the Statue of Liberty and the architectural works of Frank Lloyd Wright). The original construction cost of the Rotunda was $57,773 ($992,792 in 2006 dollars). The building stands 77 feet (23.5 m) in both height and diameter.
