Two images taken by architectural photographer Hunter Kerhart offer a before-and-after look at the Civic Center's $400-million Federal Courthouse.

The first picture, taken in June 2014 from the observation deck at Los Angeles City Hall, shows the 10-story courthouse near the beginning of vertical construction.

The second image, captured in July 2016, shows the project as it nears completion.

Designed by SOM, the building has been described as a glass cube floating above a stone base.

Also seen in the foreground is the future site of FAB Park, a $28-million project that will create two acres of new green space adjacent to Grand Park.
