Abstract
The Federal Courthouse Plaza in Minneapolis might be considered a 'run-of-the-mill' project for Martha Schwartz. Critically acclaimed, it uses a minimalist design vocabulary, innovates with new materials, and expands on theoretical ideas she has previously explored. Designed and constructed for the Government Services Administration (GSA), the plaza comprises half a block at the bases of the Federal Courthouse designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.
