Temple Open House

Since moving to Daybreak a little over two years ago, we have watched with great interest as the Oquirrh Mountain Temple has gradually sprung up out of the ground into the fully formed structure it is today. The public open house officially begins on June 1st, but community residents were invited to attend a sneak preview this past Saturday morning. It was exciting to finally see the interior. One of the cool things we noted was the modern style of the various textiles and design elements, at least compared to what you typically see.

Looking out across the valley from the temple parking lot, you can see two more temples—the Jordan River Temple (left), and the Draper Temple (right) which was dedicated earlier this year. We could see downtown, but couldn't quite make out the Salt Lake Temple amid the other buildings.

Wait..."modern style of the various textiles and design elements"...they had logos in there?

People don't rally behind a design element. They rally behind the ideas a design element should convey in a clear, concise way.
