On January 6, the American Institute of Architects announced the recipients of twenty-nine Honor Awards, recognizing excellence in architecture, interior design and urban design. One of the sixteen buildings in the architecture category is the Salt Lake City Public Library by Moshe Safdie and Associates, known for his Habitat housing project in Montreal, Canada for Expo '67. While the quality of Safdie's architecture has definitely not waned in the years since that innovative design, his exposure has been more limited, though the library in Salt Lake City, Utah may change this.
