Cadel Chapel

I was in Colorado Springs recently and made a point to visit the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel.  It was completed in 1962 based on a design by Walter Netsch.  It has become a classic example of modernist architecture, even though the design was controversial at the time.  This photo doesn’t include the best features of the chapel, which are the 17 spires.  I’ll share a photo of the exterior in the future so you can see the spires.  Another interesting feature of this chapel is that it houses five distinct worship (Protestant, Catholic, Jewish Islamic & Buddhist) areas within it.  All I can say about it is “wow”!!  It’s a great facility.
