From the author…

You will learn about the life and works of this creative organic architect, from the earliest to the last. You will see remarkable images of work done by students during Goff’s tenure. Many have never been published before. They were photographed from the archives during Goff’s tenure as director. These drawings were taken from the archives when Goff departed, including my own. Many are now gifted back to the new OU archives, where they shall remain.

Get access to the detailed tenets of Goff’s iconic Arch 273 class. Over 20 pages present text and illustrations of this unique class, taken directly from my handwritten classroom notes. Intimate details tell how the Bavinger house was constructed. Un-built work is also displayed in still images captured from superb video animations.

In this digital age of virtual learning, this e-book is the format that provides portability, ease of viewing and brilliant color displays of Goff’s art and architecture as you have never witnessed before.
