Artistic and intelligent feel for then contemporary trends in international architecture. The building has an expressive terrazzo structural sun-screening comprising a series of Y-columns, being not only structural but acting as a brise-soleil and as foil to the advocates' chambers behind them.

2020 - Recently refurbished for the National Prosecuting Authority.
