Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma Campus 2: Photo 4
While the university bought time by importing temporary buildings, Kamphoefner and two colleagues, James Fitzgibbon and Martin Kermacy, designed several modern buildings for the campus. This was one of them: Lottinville Hall, built for the OU Press in 1946. It was a big step for the campus, and a controversial one. Kamphoefner himself left Norman in 1948, eleven years after arriving. After a long career at North Carolina State, he endowed the Kamphoefner Prize, awarded to architects who had consistently fought against "the undesirable current cliches, neo-modernistic mannerisms, or artless historicism that have flawed the building culture of today." He hadn't softened one bit. He would be appalled if he had lived to see the OU campus 50 years after his departure. As for this building, it was demolished about 2005 and replaced by a building that Kamphoefner would have despised.
