John C. Driscoll recently contacted me with information and a link to a website he has begun developing with Gary McCowan and Tom Dolan for their late professor and mentor, Dean Bryant Vollendorf. Learn more after the jump... John writes: Dean was a gifted architect and amazing teacher of architecture in the Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff tradition. Dean taught at Oklahoma University after Goff and worked for John Randal McDonald before his own...
I graduated from 5th year with Dean as my thesis advisor the year Dean retired. We had an exhibit for him at UNCC and his work filled the gallery almost to the ceiling!
Dean's drawings, renderings and paintings are safe at the Oklahoma Historical Society and it is our hope they will be published at some point in the future.

The website is still in its early stages, but does have a fascinating written piece by Vollendorf called "Organic Philosophy in Architectural Education". Spend some time exploring it here and I look forward to seeing the site's growth and learning more about this amazing architect!
