RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia State Capitol has been selected as one of 10 influential buildings in America.
 
Thomas Jefferson's Classical Revival style design is set to appear on a national PBS television special "10 Buildings That Changed America" slated to air early next year.
 
The 10 buildings were selected in consultation with architectural historians and others. The show's host, Geoffrey Baer, says the sites had to have had a powerful influence on the environment and "the way we live."
 
The state Capitol that was first occupied in 1788 has influenced scores of other buildings, from the U.S. Capitol to banks across the country.
 
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the TV crew filmed around the Capitol on Wednesday after collecting footage of Monticello and the University of Virginia.
