The Price Tower has apartments in one quadrant of each floor, for a total of eight double-height apartments.
In the three quadrants of offices, three angled horizontal louvers shade the glass and wrap around each corner; in the apartment quadrant, angled vertical louvers run uninterrupted the full height of the building with small balconies off the master bedrooms projecting through them at one edge.

It was finally constructed as a multi-use, high-rise tower that would serve as the corporate headquarters for H.C.

Assisting him was former Price Tower Arts Center curator Monica Ramirez-Montagut, now assistant curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and Richard P. Townsend, executive director and CEO of Price Tower Arts Center.

 Prairie Skyscraper: Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower | Art Knowledge News
First imagined in the 1920s for a New York site, St. Mark’s-in-the-Bouwerie, then redesigned and built on the Oklahoma prairie for the H.C. Price Company, the Price Tower realized one of Wright’s cherished ideals: integrating office, commercial and residential space within a tall, richly decorative structure whose cantilevered floors “broke the box” of conventional construction.
Since completion in early 1956, the Price Tower has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, praised by architect Tadao Ando as “one of the most important buildings of the 20th century” and transformed into the home of Price Tower Arts Center as the centerpiece of the museum’s permanent collection.
