US Air Force Academy

US Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, CO

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

The 105-foot glass and steel skylight of Polaris Hall, home of the Academy’s Center for Character and Leadership Development (CCLD) dis the new addition to the United States Air Force Academy campus originally designed by SOM. Aligned toward the northern star for which the building is named, the protruding skylight works as a metaphorical moral compass, bridging that distant point with an oculus that pierces the ceiling of a maple-lined conference space that serves as the honor boardroom at the core of the building.
