I was proud of my kids for being well-mannered and well-behaved as they conducted themselves properly while on the tour and while being introduced to the company's top executives.
My kids loved the building and were fascinated by many of its features. My older son has always been interested in building and he sees the beauty in the aesthetics of architecture so he was especially excited to see the building. He loves modern urban buildings and skyscrapers. I always wondered if he would desire to be an architect but he keeps holding onto engineering, for now at least.
Here are some photos that I took with my iPhone that I further altered digitally using the iPhone app Instagram from inside the building and taken of the building while in the city.
Standing in the lobby looking up
Standing in the lobby, looking up you can see the floors above wrapping around the circular lobby.
This is the center of the round lobby seen from the second floor.
This is the floor at the very center of the lobby.
Dichromatic glass art installation, many floors high, with many of these side by side. It is opposite a wall of glass so the light plays fantastically on the dicromatic glass. As you walk down the hall the panels change color as you move past. It is hard to photograph and hard to describe. Gorgeous.
As the sun was setting, I snapped this while driving past.
Another view as the sun was setting snapped from a moving car.
In the early morning as we drove to the regatta, this was our view of the
thick clouds and skyline of Oklahoma City.
