Skywatch Friday - University Club Tower

The University Club Apartments, 1722 South Carson Avenue.

The University Club Tower is a residential high-rise building in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The building rises 377 feet (115 meters). It contains 32 floors, and was completed in 1966.  It currently stands as the 3rd tallest modern style skyscraper in the city, behind the Citiplex Tower and the First Place Tower. The University Club Tower also holds the distinction of being the first major building in the United States to be designed by a computer.

Wonderful historic building. I really like the design. Thanks for sharing! By the way, the sky is very pretty also.

Did the computer take a degree in architecture?

This building caused quite a stir in 1966. It was the tallest building in town at the time and it was a cylinder shape. Tulsa was experiencing a bit of a "Modernist" movement at the time. The Oral Roberts campus had opened only a couple of years earlier. The Rose Bowl had some interesting shapes. Nicely captured.

We have a University Club here too, but it's a restaurant instead of a tower. That's a nice shot and I like the reflection in the water too!
