Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building

Congress, through the Architect of the Capitol, directed the architect/developer team for the building to design and construct a monumental building that would last for 200 years. The architectural design complements both Union Station and the Old City Post Office Building and completes the plan for the Columbus Circle complex established when Union Station first opened in 1907.
