The Prayer Tower at Oral Roberts University is a 200 foot tall tower in the middle of the campus. It was built in 1965 and was designed by Frank Wallace. It is said to be a “Googie” influenced design. Googie is new term to me and it refers to futuristic or “space age” designs. I get in trouble with architectual terms and styles so those of you that know more about this please share and we’ll all learn something.
I think that the tower is beautiful and graceful and fits it’s space just right. Check the ORU link for information about the symbolism of the building. The distinctive shape is stylized 360 degree cross.
It was kind of difficult but I got a Selfie off the bottom of the observation deck. Yep that’s me.
Another view in a greener time of year.
