Newseum by James Stewart Polshek

Far and away the most modern building on Pennsylvania,yet it acknowledges the earlier National Gallery of Art, the National Archives (both by John Russell Pope) and the other FDR period federal buildings.  And it pays homage to LeCorbu and the Bauhaus.  But most notably, it respectsImage and enhances Pennsylvania Ave as the ceremonial avenue of this country and integrates it with the less ambitious streets, with their office buildings and interesting new residential buildings.
