Bartlesville, OK 1952
Price Tower is a 19-story, 37,000-square-foot multi-use tower that originally served as the corporate headquarters for the H.C. Price Company. It was based on Wright’s unexecuted 1925 design for a New York City apartment building, St. Mark’s Tower. Wright described the design as a tree-like mast; its concrete floor slabs cantilever like branches from four interior vertical supports. The three upper floors, which housed a corporate apartment and client Harold Price Sr.’s office, have been restored to their 1956 appearance and are open for tours. In 2001 Price Tower Arts Center took ownership of the building. Architect Wendy Evans Joseph remodeled eight floors of the tower into the Inn at Price Tower, a 19-room hotel, and the 15th-floor Copper Restaurant and Bar, which opened in 2003.
