The E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse is a historic building in Washington, DC. Constructed in 1949–50, the Prettyman building currently houses the US District Court for the District of Columbia, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. As one of the last additions to the Judiciary Square and Municipal Center complex, it stands as an almost unaltered example of the early 1950s Stripped Classicism, a non-representational abstraction of the classical style that permeated institutional, especially government architecture after World War II.
The courthouse is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a contributing property to the Pennsylvania Avenue Historic Site. The courthouse was renamed in 1997 in honor of E. Barrett Prettyman, the former Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
The Prettyman Federal Courthouse building project included the installation of Commercial Security Window Film and Impact Protection Attachment Systems to provide additional security and protect the building, assets, and people from bomb blasts and other high-impact events.
