Wayne L. Morse Courthouse Commission, Eugene, Oregon, 2007
Winner of the 2008/09 Federal "Excellence in Design Award"
A GSA project for the Wayne L. Morse Courthouse in Eugene, Oregon, “Jury Pool” was a survey taken of 162 members of the community serviced by the courthouse. These volunteers were asked their favorite color and place in Oregon. Their portraits were etched into the glass, and a circle of tinted glass was laminated behind the portrait to reflect their color. On the corresponding door their favorite place was etched as a G.P.S. coordinate. When the doors are fully opened, the three layers of information overlap to make a complete portrait of the individual. The piece was placed as a wall for the jury assembly area. A map was provided to act as the key.
A U.S. General Services Administration commission for the Wayne L. Morse courthouse in Eugene, Oregon, “Jury Pool" was created through the surveying of 162 members of the community serviced by the courthouse. The survey answers were represented graphically as a permanent sliding glass curtain wall for the jury room.
