One of the country's largest postwar architectural projects, the United States Air Force Academy opened in 1958. Its stunning Modernist design has been hailed as a national landmark and attracts over a million visitors each year. The contributors to this volume (Jory Johnson, Robert Nauman, Sheri Olson, James Russell, and Kristen Schaffer) and editor Robert Bruegmann chronicle the complex history of the planning, design, and construction of the Air Force Academy. As the most conspicuous commission of the American military at the height of the Cold War, the design of the Academy generated intense popular interest and was a lightning rod for conflicting values in postwar society. The design, by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, has been seen by many as the final triumph of the International Style and as a monument to military bureaucracy.
