William, 4/ 9/2008 - 4:41pm "Eyesore? Now now, I can understand wanting to have another addition to our art-deco collection. But this is contemporary architecture and its very good. Its probably one of the finest examples of contemporary architecture in the Region. Definitely the best I have seen in this area in my lifetime.
I contstantly find myself a bit envious of other cities getting new contemporary architecture. Each decade leaves its mark on a cities skyline. With each decade we get examples that show the city is growing. You can usually tell when a city had its heyday by the dominance of a particular style, or even when a city died by what prominent buildings are around which represent the most recent decade. What have WE got to show for this decade? The new City Hall building and..... This arena? Not a lot, and thats kinda sad. But at least the Arena is a large and I think a very fine example for Tulsa to show off.
Sure having another art-deco inspired building would be nice, but... this imo is better. Its not just another ordinary building for then sure, art deco would be better. This is a contemporary work of art. I really wish you could see that and be proud of what we have achieved.
Perhaps they will add some art-deco styling on that new baseball stadium for ya. ;-) Unless it is going to be some great work of architecture, which I doubt. Art-deco would be great."
