Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Utah State Meetinghouse Chapel Detail

I learned today from several comments on a previous post that this building, the ‘Golden Toaster,’ is going to be demolished. This will occur through a land swap with Utah State University in order to build a newer meetinghouse in another part of the campus. I agree with the article that the site is a fabulous location and will be great for the University to have. But I am profoundly disappointed that this building will be gone. It is by far one of my favorite mid-century buildings and is wonderfully designed and detailed. Losing this building is going to hurt. Here are all the pictures I have posted on this meetinghouse.

    The thing I like about the building is how the design elements are remembered throughout the building, from micro to macro.

    • Yes – I completely agree with you. In fact, it is one of the best LDS examples of this.
