dancing with architecture: Tulsa (with a side of Catoosa)
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Westhope was designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright for the publisher of the Tulsa Tribune, Richard Lloyd Jones. Jones was also Wright's cousin. The house sports 10,000 square feet and a four-car garage.
This, I believe, is an early Goff take on the bungalow:
Next up was the McGregor House, (apparently) designed by Goff in 1920 and possibly his first design (he started work with an architectural firm when he was 12!).
This is the Adah Robinson House, a house she designed along with Bruce Goff and Joseph Koberling, built in 1927. Adah was Goff's art teacher.
The Boston Avenue Methodist Church, built in 1929, is generally credited to Adah Robinson and Bruce Goff (Adah for the decoration, Goff for all else). It appears, by my eyes, to be goth-deco, topped with a 258-foot tower.
From there I deathmarched about downtown Tulsa through the twilight hour, walking hither and dither...
