US Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs - (BTT) In stark contrast to last week's Inspiration, the Cadet Chapel at the US Air Force Academy is a true triumph of modernist architecture. Designed by SOM's Walter Netsch and completed in 1962, the building was extremely controversial when initially completed, but has since been recognized for its importance - it even became a National Historic Landmark in 2004. Although there are several places of worship found within, the Protestant Chapel is easily the grandest, taking full advantage of the space located beneath the 17 iconic spires.
