Design

The structure is a classic example of Brutalist architecture; its fa├žade is dominated by large Precast concrete panels with narrow windows. The design was conceived with limited windows to keep the courtrooms and judges' chambers free from outside distraction.

Use

The building houses the 8th Judicial district Buffalo Housing Court, Landlord/Tenant Court, Small Claims, Commercial Claims, and Criminal Court.
