The Staten Island Courthouse, designed by Susan Rodriguez while a design partner at Ennead, was the subject of a recent Open House New York tour as a part of their Spaces of Justice series.
The tour, led by Susan Rodriguez and Christopher Halloran of Ennead, allowed attendees to see the inner workings of the courthouse. Heralded as a model for an improved court system, the courthouse is equipped with meeting spaces for attorneys and clients, light-filled courtrooms, and comfortable waiting and deliberating areas for the jury. The transparency of the building symbolizes fairness and openness before the law.
