Explanation:

[STC00307] In addition to his many other passions and pursuits, Thomas Jefferson was a self-taught architect in addition to being one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America and the primary author of the Declaration of Independence.

When the state of Virginia was seeking for a new design for its capitol building, the former governor of Virginia attempted to reinstate America’s newly discovered independence.

Instead of the popular Georgian style of the time (that bore King George of England’s name), Jefferson modeled it after a Roman temple in Nîmes, France, called the Maison Carée (meaning ‘Square House’).

Jefferson gave the job of designing a similar structure to the French architect Charles-Louis Clerisseau so that it might be constructed in Richmond, Virginia.

The structure was finished in the year 1788.
