Designed by Vitetta, the Pennsylvania Judicial Center located in Capitol complex in Harrisburg Central, Pennsylvania, United States. In view of the Capitol building, considered one of the most beautiful buildings of the Capitol of the United States and recalls Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the center will fill the last open area in the complex. The Capitol complex is already home to the State Museum of Pennsylvania and the State Archives, Pennsylvania Treasury Department, and many other important civic centers.
This structure, housing the third component of the governing body of the Commonwealth, will provide approximately 325,000 square feet of space in the judiciary serving: Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, the Prothonotary East Office District, the Administrative Office of the Courts of Pennsylvania and the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, associated with common or shared areas of support. Also included is a 98.000 sq ft secure parking in basement. The program includes three courtrooms in the building component of the Commonwealth jurisdictions, including a courtroom bench more than 3000 m², and two other courtrooms in 2400 sq ft. The rest of the building will provide space for the Chambers Judge, Court administrative office space, a library of the judiciary, and a conference and education for the Judicial Training Center.
