Art, landmarks, and signage elements give City Creek, Salt Lake City's new downtown mixed-use community, a unique sense of place.
When Brigham Young led the pioneers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from Missouri west to their new home in Utah in 1847, the Mormon founders settled along a mountain creek that flowed past what is now the center of Salt Lake City.
The building's architecture was designed to make the most of the stunning natural environment with walls of glass providing views of the nearby Wasatch Mountains and a rooftop garden providing 360-degree views of the Salt Lake Valley.
Rosalie Winard has produced dramatic images of America’s majestic wetland birds in more than a decade of travel worldwide. The Utah Museum of Natural History’s Wild Birds of the American Wetlands exhibit showcases 53 of Winard’s photos, creating a space that blurs the distinction between art and nature.
The Natural History Museum of Utah has created a remarkably integrated suite of design components: the Ennead-designed building nestled in the foothills of the Wasatch Range, a series of 10 interconnected exhibitions designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates that resonate with the natural setting, an interior and exterior wayfinding program by Poulin + Morris, brand identity by Infinite Scale, and landscape architecture by Design Workshop.
