The James M. Carter and Judith N. Keep U.S. Courthouse combines a slender and elegant 16-story tower that rises above a transparent and translucent base. Its ultra-thin shape supports sustainable design strategies to daylight the entire building, including each of the courtrooms. Located at the western edge of a growing downtown San Diego, the site for the new federal courthouse offers architecture that blends the downtown business core and the nearby residential community.
