Abstract
The University of Virginia is currently constructing an Arts Studio building in the parking lot of their Architecture School.

The University’s original Jeffersonian foundation and its repeated imitation throughout history has told its citizens that this is what the architecture of the University must be, without actually questioning the reasons. Can we design new, exciting buildings that still belong on the campus without designing exactly as Jefferson did two-hundred years ago?

This Thesis is my own design for UVA’s Art Studio building. In this design I have used the interaction of walls and spaces to create an environment that leads a visitor through the many stages of an Art School. The visual and physical connections of the processes within the school are intended to inspire the artists within while living in the twenty-first century.
