Modern Tulsa is excited to release the new photo set of the Robert E. Buchner collection, which the TFA Archive has graciously allowed Modern Tulsa to display. Buchner designed many of Tulsa’s iconic Modern buildings including the Ponca City Savings and Loan and the Mayo Meadow Liquor Store (which is no longer with us) among many others. A warm thank you goes out to TFA Archives for their effort in providing digital scans of the Robert E. Buchner collection, which is a must see. View the full photo set here.

Resounding Success

9 May

Modern Tulsa’s debut last night was a resounding success. With 100+ in attendance it was quickly apparent that Modern Tulsa had hit a nerve that we believed to be there all along. Photographs of last nights event will be available shortly. Stay tuned for more event announcements as well as an increase in Modern Tulsa articles. We would like to thank those who made last night possible, The Fadem Family, Herman Miller, Maharam and RetroRedo.com. We would like to especially thank those who were in attendance. In order for Modern Tulsa to truly be effective we rely on the participation of those individuals in Tulsa who feel passionately about the architecture and design of our collective heritage.

Tomorrow’s Event – How to get there.

7 May

We have had wonderful response regarding our up and coming event and anticipate a huge turnout of genuinely interested people tomorrow. Now as long as the weather cooperates we are going to have a blast. Well, we will probably have a good time in any case though a sunny day would be nice.

I wanted to inform you that the address of the event is 6259 S Jamestown Ave. rather than 6529, as the first version of our flier stated. Please see the map below. Head for the green ellipse rather than the arrow. I will post some signs around the neighborhood as well.

I am personally very excited to get to know all of you I have yet to meet. See you all tomorrow! – cole
