Dutch architecture firm OMA revealed its new plans for a six-sided glass courthouse in Lille, France. The building will feature colored glass and sheer facades on the exterior, with a unique structural design. Shaped in a hexagonal form, the building will have a triangular tower that will extend from the center. With multiple small courtrooms, office spaces and large meeting spaces, the building will be completed with light flooring and furnishing to provide a welcoming environment.
The design team wanted to "address a wide range of different elements from the city's past and present" with this new glass courthouse, which is set to be finished in 2023 and give Lille a one-of-a-kind building in the center of the downtown core.
