Manchester Civil Justice Centre in England won RAIA Award

Located in England, the Manchester Civil Justice Centre was designed by Australian architects Denton Corker Marshall. And as mentioned by dezeen.com, this law office building has won the RAIA Jørn Utzon Award for International Architecture. According to the jury, the design of the complex advances a range of ideas about how an institution with hundreds of years of precedent can be made relevant to contemporary society. The bold design replaces the traditional solid courthouse structure, which contains and encloses justice, with an idea about transparency and connection. Via dezeen |
