The new U.S. Courthouse in Greenville will join in this historic legacy of judicial architecture and it should represent the tradition of the federal court while telling the full story of Greenville and its people.  This federal court stands for (and teaches us about) justice and equity under the law.  Our task will be to define what that specifically means for Greenville, Mississipi.  We are honored to be leading the design for the Greenville Federal Building.   Click the link to see Senator Thad Cochran's Press Release on this new structure.   https://www.cochran.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/news-releases?ID=92DB7704-BFE5-42A4-B59B-7AF3A645E261

Never proceed without an idea.  Architectural ideas are larger and more encompassing than the program or site.  They entangle us first in questions of nature and culture, then gravity, light, materials, labor and use.  A formal idea attempts to make the ideal present in the real, the abstract in the concrete.  The ideas reduce the infinite possibilities to a manageable few.  Ideas should be large enough to envelope the process, owner, staff and contractor and remain strong through the tedious and complicated phases of the project.  (Foundation #6)
