Mark Grigoryan is one of the best representatives of Tamanyan neo-classical, neo-traditional architectural school. He brilliantly continued and developed the architectural language of local traditions merged with European classicism already set in the architecture of the Governmental building by Al. Tamanyan. Yet he can be claimed to demonstrate rather European handwriting in his other buildings, which is manifested in architectural forms, façade composition and proportions of his buildings.
Grigoryan’s architectural path is particularly interesting due to the shift from classical to modernist architecture in late 1950s. It can be claimed that his Matenadaran building of 1957 is the focal point in his career from which on he pursued in modernist architectural language. The buildings of American University (1979) and Constitutional court (1974) are wonderful examples of pure modernist architecture.
