General Description
The prestigious U.S. Air Force Academy’s hospital needed additional space for functions housed in temporary facilities spotted around the original classic International Style building, as well as more public waiting space and some internal rearrangement. The solution was to provide two additions and fill in an existing courtyard. All of the construction had to match the original building so that it would not be evident that additions had been made. The design was carefully phased to allow the hospital to function while construction proceeded.
