Constructed over 30 years after the most recent building addition to the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Hopper Hall represents the future of the Navy, as it is the first building at a United States Armed Forces Academy to be dedicated to the field of cyber security. It's designed to seamlessly integrate with USNA's eclectic mix of building styles while preserving historic views of the Severn River. The building's lobby, known as "The Bridge," seeks to straddle the boundary between land and sea, adding instant significance for the USNA.
