Rainy BOK Center in Tulsa


The sparkling new Cesar Pelli designed Bank of Oklahoma Center looks a bit damp in the cold December rain. Our nice Fall weather has deserted us.

Great pictures. Tulsa's a great town.

Apart from the positioning on high of the traffic lights, that could be a picture of England throughout November. Evidently our wettest yet!!!

Even as an architect, I like a lot of Pelli's work, but I am not a fan of this building. I drove by it in October and I noticed that some of the panels are a little stained. There are thousands of those metal panels and the joints of everyone of them presents multiple opportunities for a leak. This building will not age nearly as gracefully as the Fairgrounds Pavilion.

Driller - you see this building with the practical eye of a working architect. I have no doubt that time will prove you correct.

Anne - England is famous for its damp weather.

le temps de l'Oklahoma est aussi pluvieux que dans les Cévennes !

Great picture. I went wandering over today to check out the temporary ice rink.

Pretty damp in Ottawa as well, with no snow so far.
