Entry #22

Courts are uniquely different when it comes to design. There is a need to create an atmosphere and presence
suited to the governance of justice that takes place within them. Quality and permanence need to be stated.
These structures also need to function in differing ways that accommodate the legal proceedings, the public
and the prisoner holding. However, they need to reflect quality and avoid the appearance of opulence
because they are publically funded. There is a careful balance throughout the design process that adopts all of
these dynamics, and weights them appropriately.
