Delaware Tribe Community Center

The Delaware Tribe is constructing a new community center complex in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The center is located in a suburban zone that is developing rapidly. These views depict the main building of the community center and adjoining child care facility. Future construction will include a wellness (health) center and some duplex living units (see below). These pictures were acquired with a digital camera under partly cloudy conditions in early spring, 2002.

Development of the community center will lead to increased runoff during storms. This detention pond will store excess runoff to reduce the potential for downstream flooding. In spite of partly cloudy conditions, sun glint highlights the pond. Kite flyers are standing on the road to left. Digital image date 4/02, © J.S. and S.W. Aber.

The following image is a composite made up by pasting together several low-oblique views of the community center site. Existing buildings, parking lots, and roads appear toward the top and right sides of the scene. Note kite flyers at the end of the current road. The road and buildings to left are virtual architectural designs added to show their planned locations in the scene. Image courtesy of Mike Hughes Architects, P.C. © (2002).
