CAMPUS JUSTICIA
EDIFICIO DE LOS JUZGADOS CIVILES

Madrid, Spain
2007

Campus Justicia

As the largest of the Campus de La Justice buildings, the Edifice de Civil represents a unique innovative model of sustainable and technical strategies for the 21st century with the highest standards of architectural form and democratic planning. The building’s iconic form, layout and materials express fundamental democratic principles of equality, fairness, transparency and accessibility. Emblematic in its design and size, this unique, highly visible building that shades the sun by day and glows at night, has a special place in the campus.

This landmark building is designed to make a strong connection between citizens, the environment and their government. The form and its structure offer a carefully articulated example of the important forward-reaching role of the judiciary in the Regional Government of Madrid and all of Spain. The architectural arrangement of its plans and relationship to the gardens and natural light give equal recognition and respect to each participant – judges, jury, witness, litigants, lawyers and spectators.

Overall, the design gives appropriate recognition to each player in the judicial process and promotes sustainability through the integration of architecture, engineering and landscape design.
