The United State Supreme Court: Examples of Neoclassical Architecture
The United State Supreme Court building is another
large-scale example of the Neoclassical style. The style was used widely
in the early part of the 20th century institutional settings. Though
the Supreme Court building was
erected in the 1930s, architect Cass Gilbert channeled Neoclassical
ideas into his design. The immense dormer is carved with allegories of
justice and mercy. In true Neoclassical style, the dormer is supported
by two rows of eight columns across the front of the building -- always
an even number.
