Entry Description: The Center for Character & Leadership Development (CCLD) represents an important and symbolic addition to the U.S. Air Force Academy’s campus, which was designed by the submitting firm in 1954, and designated a National Historic Landmark District in 2004. As the first significant building constructed in the Cadet Area since the 1990s, the CCLD creates a new icon for the campus, and serves as an architectural counterpoint to the Academy’s Cadet Chapel. The 46,000-square-foot education center is located at a critical meeting point between the campus’ cadet and public areas. It contains the Forum, a flexible gathering space for academic and social interaction; a series of collaboration, conference, and seminar rooms; offices; library; and the Honor Board Room, where inquiries related to the Cadet Honor Code take place. A cadet seated at the board room table will be precisely aligned with the North Star.
