Studio Ideas and Inspiration

The Works of Bruce Goff

Posted in studio 1a_2010 by tnsquared on 4 February 2010

Here are some designs by Bruce Goff – an architect that I find very inspiring.

Perhaps no Twentieth Century American architect was as fearless as Bruce Goff. His only parallel in the art world might be to outsider artists today. Frank Lloyd Wright even advised him to avoid studying at an architecture school or risk losing what made him Bruce Goff in the first place. But though he remained classically unschooled, he became so proficient in his art that he was appointed head of the Architecture Department at the University of Oklahoma.


I found his work last year in high school when I was researching on gay architects. It’s refreshing to find exciting designs from artists who aren’t white, heterosexual men.
