Revitalized Regent Street Walking Tour

The Utah Center for Architecture is offering two public events to celebrate great architecture and urban planning in Utah.

On April 24, 2017, a free tour of the revitalized Regent Street and the recently-completed George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater will be offered to the community to see, sense and learn about revitalizing communities. Bringing new life to urban areas is a challenge for designers, public officials, and citizens. In addition to meeting demanding technical requirements, these places must look to the future of the city while paying tribute to its past and integrating with the urban fabric.

The tour will begin at 2:30 PM in the lobby of the Theatre, at 115 Main St., Salt Lake City and last approximately 1.5 hours. Click here for more information, including speakers   Space is limited. Register Now!

“Box City” Celebration

Also, on Monday, April 24 at 7 p.m., the community is invited to attend the dedication of 2017 Box City, devised by the creative minds of elementary school children. The dedication will be held at The City Library, Main Library, which is located at 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, Utah. The 2017 Box City will remain on display for the entire week.

 Architecture Week events are created for the public, are free, and accessible.
