Building Tulsa: The Story of A City and Its World-Class Architecture is written by Tulsa World Staff Writer Michael Overall. The 160-page book tells the story of how the pioneers and tycoons who came here wanted a city they could be proud of. They set out to make some of the most lavish and creative architecture in the country.
The book celebrates our city’s architectural history and includes several chapters on restoration projects that have saved some of our most significant landmarks, including the Hotel Ambassador, which helped renew interest in downtown revitalization when it reopened in 1999; the Mayo Hotel, which sat vacant for more than 20 years before a $40 million restoration in 2009; and the recent renovation of the magnificent Tulsa Club.
Join us for an evening celebrating our beautiful city and this beautiful book which will surely be an in demand gift this holiday season.
