Dobbins Air Force Base   

Marietta, Georgia



Citation - Eastern Region, USAF Regional Civil Engineer


Serving as both a conference center for the Air Force Base and an operations building for a flying transport squadron, the facility is located on a prominent site visible from a major city parkway. The building placement recognizes both the highly visible “public side” and a “base side” which provides acoustical screening from nearby runways. The building is clad in insulated, anodized aluminum panels anchored to a structural steel frame. Exterior forms reflect many of the interior uses. The drum contains the briefing room, while the accentuated rectangle near the drum is the squadron lounge. The triangular spine allows natural light in the corridor.
