The skyline of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, viewed from Centennial Park, blends Art Deco architecture and taller structures from later eras. The Mid-Continent Tower (third tower from left, with copper roof) consists of the 16-story Cosden Oil Tudor-Gothic building, built in 1918 as Tulsa's first skyscraper, with an additional 20 stories in the same style, cantilevered above it in 1984. The 52-story Bank of Oklahoma building (BOK Tower, on right), constructed in 1975, was until 2011 the tallest building in an eight-state region. It was created by the architect who designed the World Trade Center towers, with similar style and construction. The 47th annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will be held October 10-13, 2013, in the Coutryard by Marriott Tulsa Downtown, next door to the Mid-Continent Tower.
