MIAMI CHILDREN'S COURTHOUSE

MIAMI, FL

P&P, IN COLLABORATION WITH HOK,PROVIDED THE MASTERPLAN AND DESIGNFOR THE NEW CHILDREN’S COURTHOUSE FOR THE CITY OF MIAMI. THIS NEW PROJECT CONSISTS OF A 14 STORY TOWER AND A PUBLIC PLAZA. THE PROJECT WAS AWARDED A LEED SILVER CERTIFICATION FROM THE U.S. GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL.

THE 18-COURTROOM MIAMI-DADE COUNTY CHILDREN’S COURTHOUSE WAS CONCEIVED AS A FACILITY ESPECIALLY DESIGNED AS A JUDICIAL ENVIRONMENT FOR CHILDREN. FROM EARLY PROGRAMMING DECISIONS TO THE CHOICE OF BUILDING MATERIALS, THE PROCESS HAS BEEN ONE THAT REFLECTS THE IMPORTANCE OF VALUE-DRIVEN JUSTICE AND CARE.

THE DESIGN SOLUTION GAVE CONSIDERABLE ATTENTION TO SUSTAINING THE MULTI-CULTURAL VALUES SURROUNDING CHILDREN IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IN DADE COUNTY AND TO CARRY THAT ATTENTION THROUGH ALL ASPECTS OF DESIGN, INCLUDING THE AIM OF ACHIEVING A SILVER LEED CERTIFIED COURTHOUSE. SUSTAINING THE ENVIRONMENT EXTENDS TO SUSTAINING BASIC VALUES REGARDING THE CARE OF CHILDREN THAT FIND THEMSELVES PARTICIPANTS IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM EITHER AS DEPENDANTS OR DELINQUENTS.
