Supreme Court, Singapore

Location on the map:   Facts:
» The Supreme Court building was completed in 2005. It’s fundamentally different from the old building constructed in Victorian style, as it represents modern high-tech style.
» The appearance of the new building has been thoroughly thought out in order to show the idea of transparency in the judicial system.
» That’s why the lining is of translucent Portuguese marble and the inner entrance, stairs and elevator shafts are constructed mainly of glass.
» Today the building houses 12 civil, 8 criminal, and 3 appellate courts.
» The Court of Appeal is located on the eighth floor of the building apparently executed in form of a disk. This architectural detail isn’t accidental. The disc towering over the building is a modern interpretation of the dome that decorates the Old Supreme Court, but also symbolizes the impartiality of the judiciary.
