Miami-Dade's bad kids are getting a massive new courthouse centrally located in the Government Center district of jails, office buildings, the police headquarters, and other courthouses, designed by architecture firm HOK. It's big, blocky, and despite those glassy walled lower floors, looks quite monolithic. Hey, it coordinates with all the brutalist architecture surrounding it. But does Miami-Dade County really have enough troublemaking ragamuffins to fill up such a castle? Apparently, somebody thinks so. Noticeably absent: a playground. Naughty children don't get playgrounds. Check out a rendering of the completed structure, after the jump.
