A cable façade with point supported glass dramatically wraps much of the base of the tallest building in Oklahoma.

The stainless steel cables span vertically with most of the wall on a curved plan.

The incredibly transparent wall allows great visibility to either the outdoors or the interior treatments. Point supported glass bolts to cast spider fittings which clamp to the cables.

The dome glass is comprised of edge clamped insulated panels and the dome structure utilizes the BK-System. A full perimeter gutter provides for adequate drainage and snow drift conditions.
