Notes
Survey number HABS DC-596
Building/structure dates: 1951 initial construction
Significance: The Judiciary Building is an example of competent mid-Twentieth Century design, whose large mass and detailing draw on the International Style. The facade's granite and limestone surfaces produce wide planar expanses. The building was designed as a large scale development and was set in the urban context of smaller late Nineteenth Century commercial buildings. It is not sympathetic in scale, massing or design to the smaller structures of the square: is sufficiently distant from them, however to eliminate any direct relationship.
