WHAT DOES IT COST?
Utah’s biggest city and state capital, Salt Lake City
(SLC), is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains—
making it an outdoor photographer’s paradise with stun-
ning scenery. It’s a mecca for outdoor sport enthusiasts,
as well, especially skiers. Founded in 1847 by Brigham
Young, founding president of the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints, SLC has long been associated
with the Mormon faith, although today, less than half of
the population are members of the church.

sponsored design competition, Sixtynine / Seventy. The competition called
for ideas on how to rejuvenate blocks 69 and 70 in downtown Salt Lake City.
Muhler was tasked with creating a library of images that gave insight into the
feel of the neighborhood and could also be used as collateral for entrants to use
in their designs.
