Remembering Tulsa's Starchitects

Edward Durrell Stone designed the Tulsa Assembly Center,
but it was MJM who were the "Architects of Record."

Stage Center Seeking Rescue

The efforts to save Stage Center continue. Buttons and t-shirts are being sold, a petition has been launched and Preservation Oklahoma has appealed the demolition ruling. On March 5, 2014 a lunchtime rally is scheduled at the site from 11:30 to 1:00 to motivate volunteers and encourage supporters to attend the appeals hearing the next day.
