Volume 59, Number 3 (2006) Summer
The cover image is a cross section looking west through the dramatic main lobby of McCarty Little Hall at the Naval War College. Shown are the glass canopy leading to the second-floor main entrance, the lobby vestibule, the connection to Conolly Hall, and the lobby. As built, the main entrance (where the figure in the white shirt stands) features an automatic security turnstile. At the lower right is the entrance to the auditorium; above it is the balcony overlook. The Boston-based architectural firm of Shepley Bullfinch Richardson and Abbott designed the building to complement the existing Naval War College academic complex in siting, massing, rhythmic expression, color, and materials. In particular, McCarty Little Hall takes many of its architectural cues from the center building of that complex, Conolly Hall, to which the building is connected by an enclosed bridge.
