Architecture in Fort Worth

Tim Curry Criminal Justice Center

401 W. Belknap St. - 1990

 

This post modern courts facility uses the same buff brick and cast stone elements as the Tarrant County Corrections Center across Lamar Street except that green metal was used on this building as an accent. The metal relates to the weathered copper roofs on the Tarrant County Courthouse. The floor plate of the court floors required the building utilize the air rights over the sidewalk; therefore, the floors cantilever above the second floor. Another feature of note on this building is the pyramidal roof screen and spire in the center of the building. The architect for this court building was FRS Design Group.
