Harris House

One of the first mid-century modern homes constructed in Central Oklahoma was this house designed by OU professor and university architect, Richard J. Kuhlman. In the days before air conditioning, his creative design, which included an interior courtyard, allowed for cool breezes to enter and circulate around the house to keep it cool during hot Oklahoma summers. The design was so innovative that it was featured in several national publications.
