Photograph of Pavilion X before restoration and Rendering of Pavilion X after restoration of the parapet

Description

Another possibility is to return structures to their original appearance based on historic evidence. Jefferson’s design for Pavilion X, inspired by the Theater of Marcellus and the Temple of Nerva Trajan in Rome, featured a parapet crowning the roofline of the building. The feature was removed in the mid-19th century, but current preservation work is restoring the original Jeffersonian form.
