The Capital of the U.S state of Utah, Salt Lake City gets its name from The Great Salt Lake situated in the northern part of the state. The architecture by the architects in Salt Lake City responds to varying climatic and ecological conditions such as mountain ranges, canyons, and valleys. Another important geographical feature is the Jordan River that runs through the city and empties into the Great Salt Lake. The city is comparatively more densely populated than its neighbours. The city has a system of several municipal parks such as Liberty Park and Jordan Park. The economy of Salt Lake City is service-oriented which indicates the kind of architecture that is most likely to thrive in the city. Several international companies have their headquarters situated here that have greatly influenced the demography. Tourism, conventions, and call centres are another major source of economy and thus have an indirect effect on the local community. The 2002 Winter Olympics was held in Salt Lake City which has greatly influenced the in-flow of tourists ever since. It created a surge in the construction field with a considerable increase in the number of hotels and restaurants in the city.
