The architectural oddity either fell to a recent microburst of high winds in Norman, or at the hand of the owner.

Mystery surrounds the current condition of the work of an odd genius.
Also this: accusations that the current owner, son of the original clients, fired a gun at a news team who came to investigate rumors that he intended to "remove the target" by destroying the house on his own.
Does Goff's architecture inspire people to madness, either positive or not?
And, sorry for my scattered reporting, here is a link to video of the spiral roof shot from a news helicopter flying over the site. It doesn't look so terribly damaged after all, does it?
This is no less significant than if it had been FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT's FALLING WATER!
I live in Pauls Valley, OK and this is devastating. Currently the only Goff house on public tour circuit is the FRANK [Frankoma Pottery] house of Sapulpa, Ok.
Goff used recycled materials throughout his career, and embraced an organic style that, MOST often came in under a modest budget. [The Bavinger cost $2,150; when 3 bedroom ranch houses in the suburbs were $6-8,000]
Opposed to this Frank Lloyd Wright , homes were notoriously OVERBUDGET, and stood out frome the surroundings.
