Salerno Law Courts
This design for a Palace of Justice
in Salerno souther Italy is located on a former goods yard, peripheral
to the city centre, in an area highlighted for renewal and regeneration
as part of Spanish architect Oriol Bohigas masterplan for the city.
Won in competition, its solution to integrate the massive programme
of the law courts into the existing urban fabric was to conceptually
structure the site as a series of responses to its immediate context
– principally the new boulevard that extends along the site’s
eastern side, the railway siding to the west, and the tail of the site
looking south towards the sea.
