Devon: The Story of a Civic Landmark

devon

This richly illustrated monograph tells the comprehensive inside story of one of the greatest architecture achievements in the history of Oklahoma City, and the state s tallest building: the Devon Energy Center.

Authored by architecture critic Michael J. Crosbie, the narrative takes the reader through the Centre’s complex history, addressing the project’s grand urban design and its vital impact on the civic, social, and urban fabric of the city.  Dr. Crosbie also relates tales and insights gained from interviews of the project’s many collaborators: Devon Energy, developers, and the many architecture, design, engineering, and construction professionals.  The text reveals the project as both an immense collaborative effort and as a singular vision of the philanthropic Devon Executive Chairman, Larry Nichols.
