New U.S. Courthouse

Greenville, MS

The design of the US Courthouse in Greenville, Mississippi is a search for meaning and public good. Building designs are expected to meet many requirements for functionality, safety and health, sustainability, durability, and economy. However, certain public structures that aspire to serve our society and represent our culture must do more. They must strive to be meaningful, promote inquiry, and serve as teachers to future generations. The goals for the project’s design include creating an environmentally mature, southern civic landmark that is meaningful, respectful, and progressive and honors the character and history of Greenville. The two-part composition exposes the figure of justice, the courtrooms, behind a facetted curtainwall veil. The fragile court building, which is sited on the northern side of the site in a park, is framed by a repetitive fluted precast enclosed office building.

The new U.S. Courthouse will be an anchor for revitalization and future development in the City of Greenville. Its design is compatible with the character of the historic district while reflecting the dignity, enterprise, vigor, and stability of the United States Government. The new 55,700 GSF building will provide one District courtroom and one Magistrate courtroom. Tenant agencies will be the United States Fifth Circuit District and Magistrate Courts, United States Marshals Service, United States Probation Office, and GSA’s Public Buildings Service with trial prep space provided for the Federal Public Defender and United States Attorney’s Office.
