Thames House - the headquaters of MI5, London, England

October 27th, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Thames House is an office development in Millbank, London on the bank of the River Thames adjacent to Lambeth Bridge. It has served as the headquarters of the British Security Service, commonly known as MI5, since December 1994.

The building was constructed in 1929-30 by John Mowlem & Co on riverside land cleared after the disastrous 1928 Thames flood severely damaged run-down residential properties. It was built to designs by Sir Frank Baines, of the Government's Office of Works. It is a uniform but not identical design to Imperial Chemical House which is opposite it on the north side of Horseferry Road; while Imperial Chemical House was exclusively for Imperial Chemical Industries, Thames House originally had various uses. Baines' design owes much to the 'Imperial Neoclassical' tradition of Sir Edwin Lutyens and deliberately ties in with the Imperial design of Lambeth Bridge when it was redesigned from 1929. High up on the frontage are statues of St George and Britannia sculpted by Charles Sargeant Jagger. It was owned by Thames House Estates until it was sold to the British Government in 1994. Thames House Estates was jointly owned by ICI and Prudential for many years and subsequently was wholly owned by ICI.

Hostels of The University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland

Hostels of The University of Silesia, in Katowice, Poland.

The University of Silesia was established in Katowice in 1968 as the ninth university in Poland and is an autonomous state university. The University has its origins in the Higher School of Education, which was founded in 1928 - at that time it was the only institution of higher education in the region. Later, the school became a branch of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, the oldest Polish University. It now has campuses in five cities in the region: Katowice, Sosnowiec, Rybnik, Chorzów, Cieszyn and Jastrzębie Zdrój. The majority of faculties are located in Katowice. The main University site, located within a five-minute-walk from the centre of Katowice, allows access to the many amenities of this progressive city.

The University is located in the centre of a heavily industrialised region. Coal, steel and other industries exert a strong influence upon life of local people. For that reason, the university concentrates on equipping its students for life, as well as for work, so that they may acquire a deeper understanding of their inner resources. University's close links with the Silesian region and local industries play an important role in ensuring that its courses meet the demands of the present day and fulfil students' expectations.
