Modernism Tour Series Overview:
The modern movement in architecture was all about looking forward instead of backward. Modernism emphasized form over ornament and embraced new materials and technologies. In this month’s LIVE/Virtual Tour series, TFA explores the beauty of glass, steel, and reinforced concrete as we look at some of our favorite examples of the modern movement in a city rich with fantastic midcentury architecture. We will wax nostalgic for a period in architecture that purposefully turned its back to nostalgia.
TFA virtual tours take place in real time – they are not prerecorded. Tour guides stream live on site, while tour-goers watch and participate from anywhere. Don’t let geography stop you from joining in a TFA tour! Your $10 tour ticket directly supports the nonprofit Tulsa Foundation for Architecture.
TFA LIVE/Virtual Tour: Divine Mod
Tulsa teems with beautiful examples of modern movement churches. TFA is delighted to kick off our “God Mod” tours with three stellar, distinct midcentury modern houses of worship: midtown’s Temple Israel, Morning Star Baptist Church in north Tulsa, and Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church in south Tulsa. Join us!
