Railings & Medallions – The Judge Lenwood Jackson Justice Center


Railings & Medallions – The Judge Lenwood Jackson Justice Center

Medium: Brass, bronze, wrought iron and concrete

Dimensions: varied

Date: 2003

Location: Judge Lenwood Jackson Justice Center, Atlanta, GA

Description: The design concept for the Judge Lenwood Jackson Justice Center

is grounded in the spirit of the Federalist style by maintaining the practice of

blending aesthetic concerns from various periods and cultures. However, this

design more accurately reflects the demographics and socio-historical changes in

Atlanta at the dawn of this new century. This design concept is influenced by the

aesthetic concerns of the ancient Yoruba of Nigeria and the Ashanti of Ghana,

two African civilizations that have also contributed greatly to the fabrication of

important cultural traditions in the United States.
