In downtown Salt Lake City, the new 1.5 million sq ft (140 000 m�) conference center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) faced design issues that include height restrictions, a uniquely shaped theater/conference space, and acoustical symmetry. Occupying an entire 10 acre (4 ha) city block, the conference complex includes a multi-use, 21,000-seat assembly building, a 900-seat regional theater, and a 1,300-car underground parking structure.
