Prepare to clear the clutter. Before you can fully go minimal, you have to clear the space.

And for most of us that means decluttering.

Why are people so darned obsessed with remuddling?

Remembering Tulsa's Starchitects

Edward Durrell Stone designed the Tulsa Assembly Center,
but it was MJM who were the "Architects of Record."
Anyone who reads much about Oklahoma's architectural history in the 20th century is bound to come upon the name Murray-Jones-Murray. The architectural firm was responsible for some of our state's most iconic Mid-Century Modern buildings.

Central AIA Tour

Last week I got to spend a day with some of the Oklahoma Mod Squad crew. The occasion was National Architecture Week and the Central AIA Chapter was sponsoring a tour of seven projects in the Oklahoma City area.

I had a great time and saw some inspired commercial spaces, unique homes and promising projects. Everyone agreed and we're looking forward to more pan-turnpike modernism projects in the future!

Working from Home: Ottawa County-Style

Just had to share this blurb from Apartment Therapy.

Not just because it's a worthy read- but it was actually the picture that caught our eye. Right there in the middle of this article I'm reading by Carolyn Purnell about working from home and the ever-evolving landscape of the workspace there is this photo- have a look:

No, not the Mirra chair.

Look up on the wall.

Yeah... what the heck?!? It's a pennant that reads "Miami, Okla."

I'm not sure why anyone would need a pennant from Miami- but sure enough they have one! Wouldn't it be fun to see how many people mispronounce it?
