For this privately-developed student housing project in historic Amherst, Massachusetts, Holst referenced traditional New England academic architecture. Situated in a beautiful woodland setting, the mass of the structure sought to be minimized, and was dispersed into smaller volumes to form a cluster of gables, respecting and reflecting its natural surroundings. The student village’s geometry forms informal gathering spaces and provides ample access to the outdoors.Save this picture!© Christian PhillipsBeing one of the first modern student housing initiatives in the area, Holst worked closely with Archipelago Investments to reimagine the student living experience in Amherst. This collaborative design process translated into the student spaces, and in addition to the 73 units ranging from studios to 4-bedroom suites, the building provides a vast array of common spaces for socialization and collaboration.Save this picture!© Christian PhillipsSave this picture!© Christian PhillipsSave this picture!© Christian PhillipsSustainability is a core element of Olympia Place.

Court calls for 49 new judges

first_img Court calls for 49 new judges Senior Editor Florida’s courts need 49 new judges — two on the district courts of appeal and 47 for the trial courts — the Florida Supreme Court said in its annual certification opinion.The certification comes on the heels of 43 requested new judges in early 2000 — none of which were funded due to a legislative oversight — and 44 last year, of which 26 were approved.The court, in a unanimous per curiam opinion issued January 3, asked for one more appellate judge each for the Second and Fourth district courts of appeal.In the trial courts, the justices asked for 34 new circuit judgeships and 13 new county judgeships. Broward County would see the biggest increase, with five new circuit judges and three new county judges. Palm Beach County was certified for three new circuit judges and two new county judges.Other circuit certifications included three judges each in the Ninth and 20th circuits, two each in the Sixth, Seventh, 10th, and 13th circuits, and one each in the Eighth, 14th, and 18th circuits. In the county courts, the opinion asked for two additional judges each in Orange and Seminole Counties, and one each in Duval, Lake, Bay, and Collier counties.Chief circuit judges had asked for a total of 35 new circuit judges and 16 county court judges. The Supreme Court approved only one of the two new circuit seats sought in the 18th Circuit, and did not approve new county judgeships sought in Marion, Highlands, and Columbia counties.On the two DCA judgeships, the court noted that except for one new judgeship on the Fifth DCA in 1999, no new appellate judges have been added since 1993. During that time, total filings for all DCAs have increase by 24 percent.Using central research staff, retired judges, and improved procedures have helped cope with that influx, the court said, but the new judges are now needed in the Second and Fourth DCAs, where both filings and dispositions per judge are at or above the state’s average. The Second DCA has a higher caseload, while the Fourth is experiencing a rapid growth in population, filings, and the number of trial court judges.For the trial courts, the justices noted until 1999, they used criteria found in Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.035(l). In later years, that was modified at the request of the legislature and the courts used the “Delphi” method of weighting cases and measuring the time each filing takes to handle.“The Delphi-based case weighting analysis addresses the differences in the amount of time that must be spent on each case depending on the case type,” the opinion said. “We have applied the Delphi ‘reasonable workload’ standard in all case types, except for cases related to dissolutions of marriage, drug offenses, eviction, and civil traffic infractions. We have also adjusted for several factors that impact judicial workload, including differing jury trial rates in each circuit and county court and the number of judges actually requested by each circuit after careful consideration by the chief judge of the circuit.”If the strict Delphi criteria were followed, the court said the certification would have been for 67.5 new circuit judges and 27.6 new county judges.The court also said that many support services for the courts, including senior judges, general masters, trial court staff attorneys, hearing officers, mediators, and case management support, are essential.“These resources are necessary for the effective and efficient operation of Florida’s trial courts,” the opinion said. “Any diminution in supplemental resources from existing levels as a result of budget reductions or the implementation of the 1998 revision to Article V, Section 14 of the Florida Constitution [which shifted substantial trial court costs from the counties to the state] will increase the need for additional judges.”The court used the opinion to order further studies and tweaking of the evaluation method for new judgeships. Those include:• Asking for an appropriation to quantify how much judicial time is saved by mediators, hearing officers, and masters.• Establishing a new category to measure time needed for post-judgment matters in dissolution cases.• Directing the Drug Court Steering Committee and the Court Statistics and Workload Committee to study drug courts and develop standards for determining how much extra judicial time those courts require. The court noted that drug courts have been found very effective and the number is growing. But they require more than the 38 minutes per case allotted under the Delphi standards.In a footnote, the court said the requested number of judges this year certainly would have been lower had all 44 certified judges been approved last year. It continued, “The Delphi data for this year’s request indicates that at the circuit level there will be an overall increase in filings of 3.2 percent from 1999 to 2002. Once the ‘gap’ created by the transition to a case-weighted system is addressed, the numbers certified should reflect a more moderate increase in judicial need over time.”The opinion, In re: Certification of Need for Additional Judges, case no.
