The State Tretyakov Gallery is a museum that symbolizes Russian culture, conceived by its founder as an open institution accessible to the public, which “is useful for many and enjoyable for everyone.”
Following the philosophy established by P. M. Tretyakov of keeping pace with society, changing along with it and responding to its needs and demands, the State Tretyakov Gallery today is striving to become a “museum of a new type,” an interactive space where multiple communication links are established in order to unite the elements of the museum’s traditional conservatism and dynamism of development.

The centre of Edam dates from the 14th centuryis situated close to Amsterdam and next to the Ijsselmeer in the middle of the Netherlands. The canals are majestic, with elegant buildings and (cheese) warehouses. The architecture of this area is carefully and profoundly detailed. You can see this in the composition, materialization and lots of details.

Located near the railway station in the centre of Wels, although different in function and appearance, it relates to its context in scale and volume, as well as in its position and relation to the district and street. Old and new building structures complement each other and react in shape and context in a dialogue with the urban structure. The new building adapts itself in the space restricted by the predefined structures, reacts to existing building lines and defines with the Aktiv Energy Tower a new qualified urban corner at Bahnhofstrasse.

Constructed as part of the General Services Administration’s Design Excellence program, Schwartz/Silver’s modernization of the A. H. McCoy Federal Building and new security pavilion has dramatically changed the urban landscape in Jackson, Mississippi. The architects took the opportunity to redefine the relationship between the city and the federal government at this site. The re-envisioned plaza provides a landscaped oasis in the city for the employees and visitors who utilize the building. And by reaching out towards the corner of the site, the invitingly scaled security pavilion creates a welcoming entry point for the building.
