Aiming to provide a physical embodiment of the cultural center's commitment to accessible, inclusive art, Rand Elliott Architects focused on a design that takes advantage of Oklahoma's dramatic light and weather conditions, according to a press release from Oklahoma Contemporary.

“The new building is architecture created to celebrate the ever-changing light in Oklahoma. With a focus on arts education, the building is intended to inspire visitors to see art responding to the environment around them,” Rand Elliott, FAIA, said in the same release. “Special attention has been given to creating the north-facing outdoor terrace with views of the Oklahoma State Capitol dome. We hope visitors will leave the building with memories of their experience ascending the ceremonial stair. Art helps us see the world differently.”
