Getting to Know the Architects Who Will Design the Bob Dylan Center

Aug 1, 2018

Our two guests on ST are the architects who will design the forthcoming Bob Dylan Center, which will be the "public face" of the Tulsa-based Bob Dylan Archives -- and which is slated to open in 2021 at the corner of MLK Blvd. and Archer Street. After a far-reaching, international competition, architect Tom Kundig (of the well-regarded, Seattle-based firm Olson Kundig) was chosen by the George Kaiser Family Foundation to design this exciting new public venue. Along with Mr. Kundig -- who has received several notable honors for his work, including the 2008 National Design Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt -- our other guest is Alan Maskin, who joined Olson Kundig in 1992 and became a partner in 2008. Mr. Maskin's award-winning work tends to focus on museum architecture as well as interior and exterior design, especially in public spaces.
