Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.—
The recently completed quarters of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology on the grounds of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D. C., is a reinforced concrete, bomb-resistant building, with no windows except in the two end wings. All usable space in the building is provided with fluorescent lighting and air conditioning. Three of the eight stories are underground. Other protective features are additional reinforcement of the side of the building facing the capitol, keeping openings in the building to a minimum, and provision of emergency power units and a reserve water supply.The building is also provided with closed-circuit color television equipment whereby television communication may be established between the institute and other buildings in the Washington area and later perhaps with more distant cities. The television studio occupies the entire wing at the southeast corner of the building. Facilities for
