Oklahoma City Federal Building
The Oklahoma City Federal Building, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a national symbol of strength and resilience. Born of tragedy, the 181,000-square-foot office building replaces the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, a nine-story structure that was destroyed by a truck bomb in 1995, killing 168 people.
GSA developed new security guidelines for federal buildings, many of which are introduced within the Oklahoma City Federal Building campus. While ensuring safety, GSA also required the public architecture of the new federal building to be open, accessible and inviting, in keeping with the democratic principles of our nation.
