Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian Community Justice Center
Awarded a citation
The justice center is uniquely designed for an urban tribe bridging tradition, modern expectations, and proximity to rapid urbanization. A certain formality is needed to respond to the small community where everyone knows everyone else. The justice center provides a unique but familiar place in the desert suitable for privacy, flexibility and retreat.
