Utah Chapter, Merit Award

This award-winning assignment was earned through a design/build competition. The decision by the selection committee was unanimous, citing the proposed LMN design as portraying “…an intuitive understanding of the functional requirements for a (combined) convention and exposition facility.”

The completed project includes 250,000 square feet of exhibition space, plus related meeting and support areas, and features a unique configuration of meeting rooms that maximizes flexibility, allowing the meeting rooms to be used as exhibit space or additional lobby/registration/break out areas. The South Towne Exposition Center provides the people of the Salt Lake County region with a state-of-the-art facility, capable of accommodating a wide spectrum of consumer and trade shows, meetings, and community banquet events.

The design reflects modern technology and the contemporary needs of a public assembly facility, while making a sculptural connection with the natural landscape and mountain backdrop.
