Overview

Thousands of multi colored dichroic glass tiles were fabricated, laminated and then encapsulated into dual paned insulated glass units for the façade of the Pima County Municipal Justice Court. This installation reacts to the intense desert sun of Tucson and creates a dynamic expression of color and light on both the exterior and interior of the building. The integration of a dazzling artwork onto the otherwise austere architecture injects life and beauty into this civic building and the surrounding space.
