Jefferson Memorial is a monument in Washington that was built after Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States to honor the memories of his past. It is a neoclassical building, designed by architect John Russell Pope, so it was inspired by the Roman pantheon, and the building was equipped with an impressive dome, 39 meters high which reaches the ground level. International style followers, however, strongly criticized the design.
The construction of the monument began in 1939 and was completed in 1943. Inside, there is a bronze statue of Jefferson, which is 5.8 meters high and weighing 4336 kg.
