• Salt Lake City was the intended location of the conference

Located in the state of Utah, Salt Lake is widely described as one of the most beautiful cities in the US. A gridded city surrounded by mountains, the city was founded as a refuge and holy city in 1847 by pioneers belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints, known worldwide as the Mormons. Today the city is known as the location of the Winter Olympics in 2002, as well as for skiing, outdoor recreation, and as gateway to Utah’s Mighty Five National Parks.  For more information on the city as a destination see Visit Salt Lake.

Salt Lake, as religious foundation, has an interesting morphological story, recounted here in a description by ISUF Council member Brenda Case Scheer.

We deeply regret that we cannot host you in our beautiful city but we will feature the morphology of Salt Lake as well as some of the current planning and visions for the City.
