The Virginia State Capitol building was designed by Thomas Jefferson and Charles-Louis Clérisseau. He was asked to provide input on the construction while in France. He constructed a very detailed small-scale model and asked that those in Richmond wait until this very delicate model made it across the ocean. The bulding that now stands is based on this small scale model. The statue of George Washington was also of Jefferson's doing.
