On the architecture of the new Toronto courthouse :

Quote:
“What we think is really important now is that those public spaces have access to daylight,” Sula says, referring to the skylights and windows overlooking the city incorporated in the new Thunder Bay courthouse. “It has the ability to calm people, because these are such stressful environments, but it also has the ability to connect people back down to the broader community.”

It’s one of the ways courthouse design has shifted over the years to embody a justice system that is modern, open and accessible to the public it serves, she says.
Quote:
“Transparency is a big thing,” Berton says. “Courthouses are supposed to be seen as doing justice.”
Quote:
Some layout inspiration is being taken from shopping malls, which are designed with a “visual spine” that feels like walking down a street, he says.

Renzo Piano? This might be nice.

I hope we get something glassy like that here. This area is in need of some quality glass to relieve the brutalist cityscape.

It's one of the few areas in the downtown that could use some glass. Unfortunately you'll barely be able to see it from Nathan Philips Square because it's so short. The view south will continue to be the better by a long shot.
