Bruce Goff was apprenticed to a Tulsa architecture firm when he was twelve years old. In his mid-twenties, Goff designed Tulsa´s Boston Avenue Methodist-Episcopal Church on Boston Avenue. In 1934 he moved to Chicago to work for Alfonso Iannelli. He also began teaching at the Academy of Fine Arts. After the war, his work evolved into expressionism. No longer concerned with the conventional, Goff explored using any material for structural or decorative effect. Finding inspiration in sources as varied as Antoni Gaudi, Balinese music, Claude Debussy, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, and seashells, Goff´s mature work had no precedent.
