Judicial Learning Center at Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse
Taylor Studios designed, built, and installed multiple exhibits for the Judicial Learning Center at Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri. The Judicial Learning Center is a unique space in this federal courthouse. It was created to inform visitors about the judicial process in the courts of the United States, and promote public understanding about the rule of law in American society. The exhibit gallery is divided into four major areas, interpreting judicial independence, the federal court system, how courts work, and the Eighth Judicial Circuit. Taylor Studios also created a changeable section for courthouse staff to post current events and feedback from the public.
The one room gallery was set up like a courtroom, with a jury box and judge’s bench. Both the jury box and the judge’s bench were utilized as unique settings for interactives, placing the visitor in the role of judge and juror. Shown here, along the judge’s bench, push button interactives asked questions about a judge’s role, rewarding correct answers with a light-up gavel.
