is located in downtown Tulsa. It was completed in the late 1920’s, and is one of the most prominent examples for Art Deco by architect, Bruce Goff. I enjoy the stretched out quality of the building with the tall spires, and three stories of windows stacked on top of one another. It seems very much like a building from the 2013 film, The Great Gatsby.  It belongs in the roaring 20’s. I actually visited this building almost a decade ago. I remember being enchanted by it as if I were looking at a castle. Particularly the tower that reaches past 200 feet.
