The Riverside Studio was built in Tulsa in 1928, a year before the Boston Avenue Methodist Church. It was designed by architect Bruce Goff for a singular person, a music teacher by the name of Patti Adams Shriner. It’s fascinating that it was originally built as home, even with a large studio. My initial impression is that it’s a church of some kind. The material and make appear to be adobe. I enjoy the windows that stack diagonally, and give the impression of stairs. Ultimately, I think it’s kind of ugly because of how boxy the shape is. The roof is too flat and the walls are too straight.
