Courts and Public

Starting with the Brooklyn Public Library's Clarendon Branch—the firm's first public agency project—Perkins Eastman has grown its public sector practice to include projects like the Ithaca City Courthouse (1993), a small court building and police headquarters for Ithaca, New York, and the 107th Police Precinct (1993) in New York City. These paved the way for larger projects like the Queens Civil Courthouse (1997), which was widely published and received several design awards, the renovation of the historic Foley Square Courthouse (1999) in New York City, and the Brooklyn Supreme and Family Courthouse (2004), the largest state court project in the country at 1.1 million square feet. The firm is currently working on a 4 million square foot, 50-story twin tower justice complex in Kuwait City.

Famous quotes containing the words public and/or courts:

    Among all the world’s races, some obscure Bedouin tribes possibly apart, Americans are the most prone to misinformation. This is not the consequence of any special preference for mendacity, although at the higher levels of their public administration that tendency is impressive. It is rather that so much of what they themselves believe is wrong.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    I find it a great and fatal difference whether I court the Muse, or the Muse courts me. That is the ugly disparity between age and youth.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
