Miami, Florida

Project Information

Arquitectonica was commissioned for The Wilkie D. Ferguson Jr. Federal Courthouse with the objective to develop a state-of-the-art, safe, efficient and cost-effective building that reflects the dignity of the judicial process, while providing stringent security and meeting the requirements of the US Courts Design Guidelines, the needs of the GSA, the judges and the citizens of Miami.

The 557,000 SF (51,747 SM) complex houses tenants such as the U.S. District Court, General Services Administration, U.S. Attorney’s offices, U.S. Probation offices, U.S. Marshal’s offices and Federal Public Defender offices.

The Courthouse has been featured in multiple publications including Architecture Magazine (“The GSA On Trial: The United States General Services Administration Builds a Case for Better Federal Architecture”) and Architectural Record (“New Miami Courthouse Complex Balances Transparency and Security”).
