Bavinger House

The Bavinger House was completed 1955 in Norman, Oklahoma, United States. It is the best-known building designed by architect Bruce Goff. The house was awarded the Twenty-five Year Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1987 for being the signature building of a master architect . It was built by Nancy and Eugene Bavinger, the residents of the house, who were artists. During its construction the family opened their home to curious visitors each weekend, charging them $1 in admission, eventually making over $50,000. Eventually they decided not to let anyone see the house because they did not want to be disturbed while living there . This helped to offset the construction cost of the home. In a 1955 article, Life magazine featured the Bavinger House . The Bavinger House is now open for tours every weekend.
