Alex Slade: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report

 The Price Tower

Price Tower, Bartlesville, OK by Alex Slade

Excerpt:

In the spring of 2013 I received a Faculty Development Grant in support of travel for a projct I’m doing photographing in the Great Plains. On March 16th I boarded a plane for Kansas City, where I rented a car and spent a week driving around Kansas and Oklahoma.

As I present this project to the Otis community, I believe it will be informative across disciplines. I was able to photograph some architecturally significant buildings including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Price Tower in Bartlesville, his Corbin Education Center at Wichita State, and his Community Christian Church in Kansas City, as well as buildings by Skidmore Owings and Merrill and Bruce Goff among others. I plan a powerpoint presentation for the fall and am willing to talk to any classes interested in my findings.
