The New United States Courthouse
- Los Angeles

Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
The design of the New United States Courthouse is rooted in classic principles of American civic architecture as seen through the lens of 21st Century Los Angeles. The building’s architectural expression is

an inextricable union of site topography, functionality, environmental performance, form and democratic principles that honor the public realm.  more AIA


Federal Courthouse Oaxaca, Mexico

Architect: TEN Arquitectos

“This is clearly a building as object,” says its architect, Enrique Norten, of Mexico City– and New York–based TEN Arquitectos, which won an invited competition for the project. “It is so isolated from everything; there’s no sense of urbanity.” While many of the 750 workers within the new building lament the move from dispersed locations within the center of Oaxaca, the new centralized facility allows cases—which deal primarily in constitutional and civil law—to move along more efficiently by allowing faster communication... more


Paris Courthouse Renzo Piano
Building Workshop

Architect: Renzo Piano Building Workshop

The scale of the building is reduced by breaking it down into four superimposed volumes of decreasing size, the first of which, long and low, fits in readily with the proportions of Haussmann’s Paris.  

The three subsequent levels each contain some ten storeys. This tiered system gives rise to large roof terraces – around a hectare in total – which... more

Innovators - A Look Back


Charles Jencks 
1939 - 2019
“This cosmic setting provides the narrative for my content-driven work, the writing and design”


Charles Jencks’s prolific oeuvre as an architectural historian of the modern and post-modern eras—the Linnaeus of architecture history, as I liked to call him, given his love of classifications and sub-classifications and categories of all kinds—was sufficient to stand as a life’s work in itself. more


Laszlo Rajk
1949- 2019
"Rajk was a pioneer in making Hungary the second-strongest country, after Poland, in the production and dissemination of opposition ideas"



As an avant-garde architect in the 1970s, Laszlo Rajk became involved in Hungary’s dissident movement. His most famous work, Lehel Czarnok (2002) in Budapest, is a fantastic deconstructivist market hall, like a fantasy ship floating in the traditional cityscape. It is bursting with elements of colourful hi-tech and whimsical post-modernism.   more design/curial
