Encouraging Animal Awareness in Tulsa

Out & About in Greater Tulsa by EMILY RAMSEY

There are not many things that warm my heart more than seeing people spend time with their pets. The bobbing head in the backseat of a car; the prancing feet of a dog heading to the dog park; the quiet, contented animal lying beside his master’s feet at an outside cafe.

320 South Boston Building: Classic and Stately

On Architecture By ROGER COFFEY, AIA

Bricks and mortar additions cause buildings to grow in size, and as they grow, they establish a special identity and character. So it is for the 320 South Boston Building. This stately building with its classical Beaux Arts façade was designed by architect George Winkler in 1917. The north wing at 12 stories was originally the Exchange National Bank. This name and date are captured in intaglio letters at waist height in the limestone facing of the north (Third Street) elevation. In 1923, the 12-story south wing was added. This wing was almost a match to the north wing except for ground floor window treatment and a narrower dimension in the east-west direction. (The north wing has dramatically-tall arched windows.) The south wing is also significantly horizontally shorter than the north.

Making Connections, Finding an Escape at the PAC

Show Buzz by NANCY HERMANN

Coming in to work today, I was car dancing to an old Red Hot Chili Peppers song with the lyrics “Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.” I ruminate a lot as I negotiate potholes and search my soul for tailgater forgiveness while making my way on the B.A. Expressway every morning. Today, I was thinking how special it was for the Red Hot Chili Peppers to produce a rocking sweet song about Los Angeles. When I looked up its origins, I found out that “Under the Bridge,” written by the band’s lead singer Anthony Kiedis, was conceived as he was driving the L.A. freeway and is about his hometown and about a lot of other things, including the deepest feelings of isolation.

International Plaza Building a World-Class Structure

On Architecture by ROGER COFFEY, AIA

There are some office structures that in your face loudly proclaim, here I am, look at me. Others stand modestly and unobtrusively as you pass them by. The International Plaza Building at 1350 South Boulder is one of the latter, quiet in its subtle elegance as it sits on its one-acre site.
