Contemporary Landmarks - Salt lake City makes its mark
on the global architectural map

ARCHITECTURE/ 7 MAR 2018 /BY SCOTT BAY

...The city centre is only a few miles from world-class ski resorts, mountain bike trails, and protected land. While many outdoor enthusiasts call Salt Lake City home, it also draws a young, forward-thinking, and educated workforce.
Tech companies in particular are flocking to Utah. The state is home to more than 4,000 startups and was recently named one of the top locations in the United States for online business. With the help of the area known as Silicon Slopes
just south of Salt Lake, Utah is the third fastest growing state in the nation

Utah welcomes more than 25 million visitors to national parks each year and also serves as a cultural hub and host to the annual Sundance Film Festival, which brings in film stars and cinema lovers from around the world. The George S and
Dolores Dore Eccles Theater, completed in 2016, is Utah’s world-class performing arts theatre. It both enhances the film festival experience but also brings extended stay, first-run award-winning touring Broadway musicals to Utah
year round.

Since hosting the successful 2002 XIX Olympic Winter Games, Salt Lake City has embraced unique modern structures — and this architectural boom hasn’t slowed. The Natural History Museum of Utah, which marries nature with the
manmade, continues to inspire many projects. GSBS Architects/Ennead Architects built this iconic museum with mother nature in mind. The structure is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building that
seamlessly integrates state-of-the-art design ideas, and it has successfully paved the way for all that is coming to Salt Lake City.

Read on to see the projects that are putting Utah on the global architectural playing field...
