Points of View, the focal point of the lobby, is a 28-foot sculpture comprised of two conical forms one suspended over the other and intended to suggest the ongoing dialogue, between compassion and justice, natural law and the rule of man, the ideal of the judicial system and the difficulty creating true balance within society.

The aligned cones are the center for the concentric arcs that spread across the lobby and symbolize the rippling effect of the individual's action on society at large.

Artist Design Team: Pam Beyette, Michael Davis, Norie Sato and Richard Turner.
