The Temple of Justice; A New Federal Courthouse for the City of Baltimore
The New Baltimore Federal Courthouse was to be memorable. It would symbolize the transparency, power, and public worth of the American judicial system. It would be a modern temple to justice that would be worthy of the public's trust. The new courthouse was to be progressive, with sky gardens rising in the tower overlooking the Baltimore Convention Center and over the harbor. This courthouse was to be a high performing, bioclimatic skyscraper and its stewardship to the environment would be as literally transparent as the courtroom would be figuratively. The procession of would be a heightened experience of majesty for the public, who would visit the courthouse out of civic duty and also privilege to participate in justice.
