Maybe best if you like modern junk.

There's much better court houses, especially the big grand beautiful colonial ones.

Not true, so it's obviously only in your circle of references where such things are not done.

I also like the Manchester one. However, I have to admit from looking at the other photos it has stiff competition from all around the world. Courthouses are often built to grand designs and it shows in this thread.

A lot of those courthouses are so faddish it makes a city look bad.
Indianapolis used to have a grand courthouse of limestone and second-empire mansard roofs.
It was demolished in 1962(built in 1877) for the front lawn of the new one all in the name of 'progress' and the new one now sits as a regret of the demolition of the old one.

Your just not in the gig dude.
It makes a lot more sense to be modern and cutting edge and reface our buildings every ten years for the next cutting edge design.
Geesh, building structures that are beautiful ten years from now? Are you crazy?

I think one of the nicest in the US is the Westmoreland County Courthouse, in Greensburg, Pennsylvania
