The courthouse in Jerusalem is located on a newly designed main public square in the city center of Jerusalem. The building houses all the judiciary levels except the Supreme Court, and contains 113 courtrooms and 135 judges’ chambers. The design of the court building connects and bridges among the host of diverse design languages of the buildings around it while creating a distinctive language of its own. The court building is designed as a spatial composition in which a vertical rectangular prism, containing the judicial wing, penetrates into a horizontally laid-out prism, with a sloping upper face, housing the judiciary services and the foyer. The vertical prism is divided into two vertical slices, a broad one containing the courtrooms wing and a narrow one containing the judges’ chambers wing. The building’s design as a simple, minimalistic composition, with each prism housing distinct activities, is in the modern architectural tradition that calls for form to follow function. The logic behind this principle is not merely formal; rather, its aim is to point to functional, technical and economic efficiency. The building is a result of a winning competition.
