skidmoreowingsmerrill The facade of the new United States Courthouse in Los Angeles, captured in this stunning photo by @thefoxisblack, holds the key to the building’s stellar environmental performance. Transparent panels in north- and south-facing pleats bring in sunlight, while opaque panels in east- and west-facing pleats minimize solar heat gain. The resulting design offers the advantages of glass construction—namely, exceptional daylight and views—while also meeting rigorous energy efficiency standards and contributing a new architectural and civic landmark to Los Angeles’s revitalized downtown core.
