The Industrial Court of Trinidad & Tobago

Above is my drawing of the Industrial Court of Trinidad & Tobago; on the corner of Queen and St. Vincent Streets in Port of Spain.

“During the period 1960 to 1964, Trinidad and Tobago was plagued by a number of strikes by workers and lockouts by employers which affected the economy. The Government’s answer to the problem was the Industrial Stabilization Act 1965. This Act was “to provide for the compulsory recognition by employers of Trade Unions and Organizations representative of a majority or workers, for the establishment of an expeditious system for the settlement of Trade Disputes, for the regulation of prices of commodities, for the constitution of a Court to regulate matters relating to the foregoing an incedental thereto.”

The Industrial Court of Trinidad & Tobago

Above is a sketch and watercolor of the Industrial Court on Trinidad & Tobago; on the corner of Queen and St. Vincent Streets in Port of Spain. I continue to work on my watercoloring techniques, and feel good about this one. I like this building. The awnings, the main entry, the articulation at the corner and treatment of the base of the building, well done. The Industrial Court looks very dramatic in and solid… like a court should be.
