A cable façade with point supported glass dramatically wraps much of the base of the tallest building in Oklahoma. The stainless steel cables span vertically with most of the wall on a curved plan. The incredibly transparent wall allows great visibility to either the outdoors or the interior treatments. Point supported glass bolts to cast spider fittings which clamp to the cables.
A classic lightweight low rise single layer geodesic dome sits on the top of a cylindrical atrium comprised of structural steel and conventional glazing allowing views upwards of the adjacent high rise. The dome glass is comprised of edge clamped insulated panels and the dome structure utilizes the BK-System. A full perimeter gutter provides for adequate drainage and snow drift conditions.
A series of dichroic glass art walls are supported on very nominal structure bringing a changing effect to the lobby areas under varying light conditions and viewing angles. Novum installed the scope which was created by Carpenter Associates.
