When it comes to Oklahoma, if anyone can sense a place and create a sense of place, it’s Rand Elliott. The state’s culture, nuances, and history are engrained in the architect’s DNA. He still has vivid memories of childhood tractor rides on the farm where he was born and raised until, at age five, he moved with his family to Oklahoma City. He’s lived and worked there ever since, establishing Rand Elliott Architects in 1976. Three decades later, having produced a distinguished portfolio of mostly regional projects, he was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame. Given that resume, Elliott’s winning the commission for a new building for the relocating Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, the region’s leading institution for contemporary art education and exhibitions, was all but a forgone conclusion.
