Tulsa’s Union Depot Remains Art Deco Jewel

On Architecture by ROGER COFFEY, AIA

For many years, a large watercolor painting hung in a small conference room in my office. Painted by an architect, the painting’s subject was a pair of entrance doors with an arched transom. The glass in the rusted red doors and transom was shattered, conveying a mood of neglect and abandonment. This public building’s as-built use ended after 36 years. It stood empty for 13 years and then was successfully restored and repurposed. The building is Tulsa’s Union Depot Train Station.

Tulsa County Recycling at an All-Time High

Trash Talk By BETH TURNER

An eco-activist does not have to look long to find a cause to champion these days. But sometimes, we need to stop and realize how far we’ve come and how much we do for the good of ourselves, our city and our future. Tulsa County residents are so on board with recycling that the city had to release a campaign to remind us just exactly what can and cannot be tossed in to curbside bins. Hats off, Tulsans! By the way, those four to focus on include paper, plastics #1 & 2, glass, and aluminum/ steel.

Sustainable Yards and Gardens Beautify While Saving Time, Money and the Environment

Trash Talk by BETH TURNER

Flowers are blooming, the sun is warm and the grass is getting tall. After mowing for the first time this season, I realized just how many ways our personal patches of green can either help or hurt our environment, as well as either suck up our time or give it back to us so we can enjoy our outdoor oasis. What if you never had to mow or weed-eat again? Now that sounds like my kind of eco-friendliness!
