The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, San Francisco, CA

The United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals represents one of the first base-isolated projects in the US and the process required a complete renovation of this magnificent example of Beaux-Arts building. Originally completed in 1905, the historic building required extensive retrofitting after the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. SOM was selected as the project architect to design, engineer and oversee the 100,000,000 USD project.

Joshua Cohn was part of the Project Design Team while with SOM
Philip Snyder was part of the Project Technical Team while with SOM.
