US Air Force Academy Polaris Exhibition Kiosks

US Air Force Academy Polaris Exhibition Kiosks

The Polaris Hall is the first new major building at the United States Air Force Academy to open in several decades. As the new home for the Center for Character and Leadership Development, the Hall is a centerpiece for cadets’ moral, ethical and leadership growth and development.

Working closely with Air Force leadership, our team created digital interfaces that provides the themes of personal character that are advanced through cadet training. Relevant videos, symbology, photography and narrative text are delivered in easy-to-navigate touchscreen interfaces. The kiosks mix etched glass, wood and painted metal and reinforce Air Force messaging. They strongly reflect the architecture’s connection to Polaris, the North Star.

Studio Tectonic provided design, interactivity and complete fabrication/implementation.
