Today's image, the latest in my American Architecture desktop pictures series, is from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I grew up in the shadow of Pike's Peak and my dad used to take me to basketball games at the Academy. This building has always been one of my favorites, and this is a great picture of it.
I think what I like about it is that it's so clean - all crisp lines and sharp angles. So often in architecture people compromise away the best design elements, but this is all there, precise and looking like a set of razor-sharp teeth!
