Exciting changes are underway here at Tulsa’s nonprofit dedicated to architecture and design. TFA has named Amanda J. DeCort as its new Executive Director. DeCort has served in leadership roles on TFA’s Board of Trustees for two years, focusing on board development and events such as the popular Dwell in the IDL and Second Saturday tours.
The architectural community and TFA mourn the loss of David Murray, who passed away February 17 at the age of 96. Murray was principal of Murray-Jones-Murray Architects, a firm well known to fans of modernism and responsible for some of Oklahoma’s most notable buildings.
Dave was a native Tulsan and enthusiastic supporter of the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture. The collective works of Murray-Jones-Murray is one of the most treasured collections in the TFA archive.
A leader in historic preservation and a highly respected architect for nearly four decades in Tulsa, Herb Fritz, AIA, was a co-founder of the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture and its first president.
Herb passed away on September 7, 2014 at age 64, but left a legacy of community service and work that will outlive generations to come.
KSQ Architects is sponsoring a week long run of the architectural documentary “How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?” at Circle Cinema in Tulsa.
