The Nathan Deal Judicial Center has been honored with ENR Southeast’s Award of Merit for a Government/Public Building. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, The Nathan Deal Judicial Center became the new home of Georgia's State Supreme Court and Court of Appeals earlier this year. The new courthouse, the first state building in the history of Georgia that is devoted entirely to the judiciary, stands in dialog with the historic State Capitol (Edbrooke and Burnham, 1889) across the complex intersection of Capitol Avenue and Memorial Drive. The new building's arcing north facade, highly visible from the Capitol complex and adjacent expressways, communicates the dignity and stability of the Courts with the restrained Classicism that has long symbolized American justice. RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern and Grant F. Marani led the design effort. Stevens & Wilkinson served as associate architect and architect-of-record.
