Brad Goldberg's artistic adaptation of the courtyard for the Municipal Court combines architecture, landscape, art and history. The landscape element of his design mixes native groundcover with a canopy of more than 85 mesquite trees, which are historically native to the site. But the most striking aspect of the entire design is the series of three primary- access walkways that lead to and from the building and an interior square. A geometric patchwork of yellow, black and green stone suggests decorative rugs that extend from the building's entrance to surrounding streets in a gesture of welcome. As the artist explains, "The beauty of these walkways aim to psychologically emit a sense of calm to the users of the building whose purpose within can often be anxiety-filled."
