Bruce Goff – Practice Information

Oklahoma architects studio led by Bruce Goff from mid 20th century

1904 –1982

An American architect, distinguished by his organic, eclectic, and often flamboyant designs for houses and other buildings in Oklahoma and elsewhere.

A 1951 Life Magazine article stated that Goff was “one of the few US architects whom Frank Lloyd Wright considers creative…scorns houses that are ‘boxes with little holes.”

His father apprenticed him at age twelve to the Tulsa architectural firm of Rush, Endacott and Rush. Goff’s employers were impressed with his talent; they soon gave him responsibility for designing houses and small commercial projects.

One of his earliest designs that was actually built was a house at 1732 South Yorktown Avenue in Tulsa’s Yorktown Historical District; another was the 1920 McGregor House, at 1401 South Quaker Street in what is now known as the Cherry Street District. This house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.
