The Evo A. DeConcini Federal Courthouse, named for a former Arizona superior court judge who was also a former state attorney general, was completed in 2000. Designed by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates and situated on the edge of the city, the courthouse forms a gateway to the desert and the mountains beyond. It is formed of two six-story towers connected by a glass bridge.

Artist Lita Albuquerque designed the summer and winter courtyards as the Gardens of Remembrance, which explores the changing relationships between a place, its inhabitants, and its history. For Jim Waid, the dramatic switchback stairs of the courthouse's main lobby are reminiscent of the trails that climb the side of a mountain or canyon. The sensuous colors and textures of Waid's enormous, multi-paneled Sonoran Spring mural lead visitors up these stairs. Their reward is a deeply personal and vibrant interpretation of the beautiful Sonoran Desert that surrounds the city of Tucson.
