Tour the First Americans Museum

We're excited to announce our first OCFA Tour of 2022! Join us for a tour of the First Americans Museum led by one of the architects of the project, Anthony Blatt, AIA of Blatt Architects (formerly Hornbeek Blatt Architects).

First Americans Museum (FAM) celebrates the 39 Native Nations within the State of Oklahoma. Located on a reclaimed oil field site on the intersection of I-35 and I-40, the project commenced in 1997. The selected design team remained constant with the project after many financial delays, finishing the final construction phase in 2021. The design of the 175,000 sq. ft. building/site showcases themes consistent for all the tribes, without disproportionate promotion of any specific group, and for this reason the building materials are a simple palette: glass, steel, wood and concrete, organized in a series of radian geometries. These geometries are consistently accepted among the Native Nations, speaking to the spiritual significance of the unending circular forms from which life originates, continues and begins anew.

Announcing Grant to Honor Lynne Rostochil

The Oklahoma City Foundation for Architecture (OCFA) will offer an annual grant program to fund the preparation of National Register nominations for structures, sites, and/or districts in central Oklahoma.

This grant program has been established in memory of Lynne Rostochil, an architectural historian and photographer who, in her lifetime, passionately advocated for and diligently recorded Oklahoma’s rich architectural heritage. The OCFA intends to honor Lynne’s legacy by nominating structures, sites, and/or districts for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in order to continue her work to identify, evaluate, and promote the states’ historic resources.

The grant award amount will be based on the Preparer’s cost estimate for the preparation of the nomination and is presumed to cover any and all expenses related to the preparation of the nomination, including but not limited to travel, printing, postage, and photography.
