OSU Tulsa Gateway Tower
Oklahoma State University, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Tulsa’s downtown skyline includes a bright orange Oklahoma State University presence. Located on Tulsa’s historic Standpipe Hill on the west side of the campus, the OSU – Tulsa Gateway Tower overlooks Interstate 244 and the Tulsa Arts District. OSU-Tulsa President Howard Barnett says that the 70-foot-tall structure, illuminated on all sides with OSU emblems, “highlights OSU’s presence as part of the downtown Tulsa skyline and lets campus visitors know they are entering Cowboy country.” KKT’s design echoes the brick construction of the OSU-Tulsa campus while giving a nod to the landmark’s namesake: Tulsa’s first water tower, a standpipe, which is echoed in the proportion of the Gateway.
