Modernism on South Temple Street Walking Tour  

There has been a growing recognition of the architectural significance of many of the mid-century modern buildings that, at the time of their construction, were harshly criticized, even reviled.

Now a number of South Temple Street’s Modernist buildings have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. South Temple Street is remarkable in that it is the only street in Utah that displays the progression of architectural ideas during the mid to late 20th century.

This tour is about 50 to 80 minutes long, and will go from 400 E. to 800 E.

Saturday, May 6 at 10am

This is a free tour but registration is required.


Please note: Tour may be cancelled if fewer than 3 people register. Check your email for updates before heading to the tour. This is an exterior only tour and will not enter any homes or businesses.

Watch the tour launch conversation with author, Bim Oliver, as we discuss Modernism not only on South Temple, but as an architectural style and its influences.
