by Rex Brown Bruce Goff may have been born in Kansas, but he called Oklahoma home for many years. During this time he made his influence felt through his art, music and unique architectural designs. His repertoire included residences and commercial buildings ranging from Art Deco to fantastical organic. In 1947 he began teaching at the University of Oklahoma, eventually becoming chair of the School of Architecture despite the fact that he held no formal credentials or architectural degree. At the time of his death in 1982 Goff was planning a creative school of his own called Kebyar. This was the inspiration for a network of fans of organic and unusual architecture and design known as Friends of Kebyar.
