"This eleven-story building was designed by Bruce Goff. It was built through the joint effort of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce and the Tulsa Club. The first five floors of the building were occupied by the Chamber and other business organizations while the top six floors and the roof garden were inhabited by the Tulsa Club. The Tulsa Club contained dormitory rooms on the sixth floor and a men's lounge on the eighth floor. The club also had a gymnasium and barber shop. The club's interior had Art Deco ornamentation including fireplace tiles. Built of Bedford stone, the original 5th Street entrance was designed with abstract detailing above the doorway."
I conquered my fears and climbed this building on Sunday. With the help of a great friend as though. Fantastic. I love Tulsa. I took these photos with a cheap film camera. ♥
