Mariano Deuonni of Hassell designed the Roma Mitchell Law Courts for the Federal, Family and Federal Magistrates courts, and High Courts in Australia. This $96 million building has 22 courtrooms. It opened in 2006.

The circular Opal is clad in partinated copper, a landmark feature for this post-modernist structure. The sandstone and soft colored materials blend into the natural surroundings and greet nearby Victoria Square. It rises a total of 11 storeys or 57m.

The building boasts environmental features, such as rainwater recycling. Courtyards and large windows let plenty of sunlight in, metaphorical for transparency in the legal system. As the following video shows, people aren't impressed, however.
