The People’s Buildings – 2015 Architecture Week

Architecture-Week-LogoArchitecture Week Registration & Calendar

Join us for presentations, tours, and the always wonderful “Box City” display to celebrate Architecture Week, April 20-25. All UCFA events are free and open to the public.

This year, our theme draws from the great Thomas Jefferson, nation-builder and architect, who believed a new republic deserved a fitting civic architecture. We’ll have a free, public presentation Wednesday evening by historical and architectural experts that will take you from the theories of Mr. Jefferson to reflections on today’s sleek, security-conscious designs.¬†Friday afternoon, pick a walking tour of civic buildings in one of four cities–Salt Lake, Ogden, Provo, or West Jordan.

Friday, drop by the AIA Utah office at noon to hear an informal, brown-bag presentation by University of Utah researchers on their discoveries about post-World War II Utah architects and their impact on our state.

And don’t miss the colorful Box City created by over 250 elementary children filling the SLC Main Public Library’s Urban Room from Monday evening through Friday. Parents, students, teachers, architect mentors, and the community are invited to the opening Box City “dedication” Monday evening at 7:00.

You can wrap up the week by attending the Utah Heritage Foundation’s annual Historic Homes Tour of SLC’s Harvard/Princeton Neighborhood. You can register for this ticketed event through their website.
