Baskervill, marking its 115th anniversary, may be Richmond's oldest architecture firm. Early in the last century it designed such icons as Beth Ahabah synagogue and West Hospital at the VCU Medical Center. The firm serves clients in this country and Canada, and one of its partners, Bruce Tyler, represents the 1st District on City Council. Moseley Architects is behind some highly visible new educational buildings here including the light-filled Glen Allen High School, VCU's popular Cary Street Recreation Center and its schools of business and engineering, which have transformed Monroe Ward. The hand of Walter Parks Architects is seen in many of the new apartment complexes along West Broad Street and in Shockoe Bottom. Some prominent projects by another modernist, Sanford Bond of 3North, include the Richmond Ballet building, Maymont's nature center and the Dominion Resources complex that lords over the falls on Tredegar Street.
