Utah Center for Architecture, a non-profit organization, educates the public about the power of the built environment to shape our lives, communities and culture.
In 1983, the Utah Chapter of The American Institute of Architects formed the Utah Foundation for Architecture and the Built Environment as a separate non-profit organization for public outreach and education. This Foundation was active for about a dozen years, offering public lectures, TV segments, and sponsoring special projects. It then became inactive until 2008, when a special project—the Utah Architects Project—inspired AIA Utah to reinstate the Foundation. In doing so, organizers saw a very different potential for public involvement than the one created a generation ago and re-created the organization as the Utah Center for Architecture (UCFA). It is broadly inclusive of all built environment design.
