The Civil Courts Building is a landmark court used by the 22nd Judicial Circuit Court of Missouri in Downtown St. Louis. The architects were Klipstein & Rathmann who featured Greek Revival architecture throughout the building.
The pyramid roof was designed to resemble the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world. It features 8 columns on each side.
The roof is cast aluminum with two 12 foot (3.7 m) Sphinx-like structures with the Fleur-de-Lys in Saint-Louis adorned on the chest. These Sphynx-like creatures were sculpted by Cleveland sculptor, Steven A. Rebeck.
