On Wednesday, April 11th, KRCC, NPR's Southern Colorado affiliate station, interviewed Design Director Eric Keune about SOM's Modernist design for the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Renowned photographer Ansel Adams documented the site before construction, with the images used by the SOM team to better understand the site and refine the design.
