Architecture Week is an opportunity to celebrate architecture and to promote the importance of our built environment.
The American Institute of Architects Central Oklahoma Chapter designated April 17-23, 2017, as Architecture Week in Oklahoma. The week culminates every year with its Architecture Tour. On Saturday, I took the trek with my fellow built-environment enthusiasts taking look in every nook and cranny of these buildings we might never have the opportunity to tour, and critically evaluate, if not for this designated day.
Every spring, I anxiously await the lineup of residential homes and commercial buildings that the Oklahoma City AIA Chapter felt were significant enough that people would pay $25 and take an entire afternoon to tour. This year’s tour presented four residences, two office buildings, and one school.
