Name that Courthouse – March 2017

  1. Built in 1998, this courthouse was designed by the same architect who did the John Hancock Tower in Boston (1976), the Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters in Brunswick, New Jersey (1983), and the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles (1990).
  2. It is named for a congressman who led the special panel that investigated the murder of six Jesuit priests and two women in El Salvador in 1989. A bridge next to the courthouse is named for the congressman’s wife.
  3. The building’s air conditioning system freezes water at night, when electricity is cheap, to cool the building during the day. The method saves over $1 million a year.
  4. The courthouse is a stone’s throw from the site of a famous protest carried out by the Sons of Liberty.
