The chapel at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The architect was Walter Netsch. They describe the look of the chapel as: Massed like a phalanx of fighter jets shooting up into the sky.

It certainly looks like that, or perhaps like missiles aimed skyward. I love the building. It follows Frank Lloyd Wrights credo in a way, FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION. Although I'm not positive if that's his credo or his mentor Louis Sullivans. I'll leave that to others to interpret. I think the building is the epitome of the word apropos.
