Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals
The Federal Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, CO is an architecturally stunning building with a deep history. The judicial decisions made here have helped shape the lives of all Americans. Studio Tectonic designed a new public exhibit within the 1916 building focuses on three main content areas:
- Teach about the critical role that the Tenth Circuit Court plays in the federal justice system and the appeals process throughout the judiciary.
- Explore the history of the architecturally rich building with its references to ancient-to-modern rule of law and to the postal service that it also housed.
- Celebrate important past cases that were decided by the Tenth Circuit Court and use them to express the range of appellate courts’ work.
Studio Tectonic worked with the court’s officials, the Tenth Circuit Historical Society, and researchers to focus and frame the purpose of the exhibition. The building’s architecture is carefully integrated into the design and use of symbol and legal references enrich the displays.
Project scope included all phases of design and documentation as well as public bid of fabrication and construction administration.
