2020 AIACOC Membership Directory - ATTENTION FIRMS
It's been a long time since we've put together an AIACOC Membership Directory but we're going to get one pulled together this Spring.  

As a first step in doing that, we'd like to ask the MEMBER FIRMS to complete their firm listing and send it back to us by January 24th.  

You can find the form  HERE.  

As a reminder, AIA is an individual membership organization but AIA Central Oklahoma recognizes Member Firms as those who have 60% of their licensed architects and 40% of their intern architects as members of AIA.

Interactive Art Piece - Tower Center at Unity Square

Primary Purpose

The primary purpose for this competition is to provide a unique centerpiece for Tower Center at Unity Square.  The chosen solution will be an artistic installation with an interactive water component.  The installation should celebrate unity, community, and the unique attributes of Bartlesville.

History and Vision of the Project

In 2018, our citizens voted to develop an urban gathering place to unite Taliesin Fellowship's Community Center and Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower. Tower Center at Unity Square will celebrate the arts with a performance venue, artistic play areas, open lawns for play and relaxation, inviting native stone and plantings, the sounds of water, and intriguing sculptural pieces.  The goal is to provide a gathering place where all people can interact with each other and the arts in a variety of ways. Static art displays will be joined by interactive art pieces, performances, and festivals to bring everyone together regardless of circumstance, culture, or lifestyle. It will be a place where we can dream our own dreams, and connect with our neighbors.

The centerpiece of Tower Center at Unity Square is the subject of this art competition. This installation will be located at the intersection of the design grids of the Community Center and Price Tower and will signify the coming together of all people with the arts and the natural environment. The space allocated for the centerpiece is approximately 750 sf, so the scale of the piece will be significant in the park setting. The winning design will be an artistic installation that is completed by public interaction, and will include a water component for play by the child in all of us. 

The unveiling of the final installation will be in the Fall of 2020.
